    ABSTRACT: Electric power is a key driver of economic growth and prosperity (1). But access to electricity still remains a distant dream for majority of the population living in the remote and arid areas of developing countries mostly Indian sub-continent. Solar photovoltaic (PV) systems have shown their potential in rural electrification projects around the world. Photovoltaic (PV) systems (2) use wafers, which are typically made of crystalline silicon when exposed to sunlight, will produce a small direct current. Available free land is very limited in Bangladesh. So to setup a solar PV Power plant, an alternate has been investigated in this paper work. The available free space over the railway tracks has been considered for power generation. The design calculation and analysis were carried out before it was modeled, simulated in SAM (Version 6.1). The aim of the paper is to analyze the technical description of a photovoltaic system, analyzing each of the elements, the presentation of different types of existing plants and the regulation, and presenting a proposal of such a plant based on the theoretical considerations and calculations.
