The distribution of solar cell modules is planned by referring to a plant shoot configuration. The object of this planning is to develop a solar power generation system with low directivity and a low installation space. In this study, the amount of insolation which reaches a plant shoot within an arbitrary period was investigated using the LAPS. The LAPS algorithm consists of the Genetic Algorithm and Monte-Carlo Method. In this analysis method, the optimal configuration of the shoot at the time of maximizing the amount of light received was clarified. The position of the light source in the representation day of mid-term to summertime has a wide movable range of the plant shoot configuration. Since the amount of light received of “the leaves arranged to the level surface” and “the plant shoot configuration optimized every month” is measured, light receiving characteristics of the Kenaf shoot model and coptophyllus shoot models were investigated.
