The perovskite solar cell has been analyzed by through mechanism and its equivalent circuit model. The software which is used in the simulation of an IV characteristic of Perovskite solar cell was developed by the GPVDM software .The increase in Power Conversion efficiency (PCE) has been shown through numerical modelling and is caused by when we increase the thickness of the absorbing or active layer. Hence efficient charge separation occurs. Apart from that effect of the electrical parameters such as series resistance Shunt resistance, band gap etc. on its I-V characteristics, Jsc and Voc is also simulated and its effect of efficiency has been noted.
