There are a few models you can use for a PV panel in Energylus.
The documentation is quite long, so you'll have to look each up in the Input Output Reference to determine which one is appropriate. I'm sure one of them will be detailed enough for you.

For the light measurement, panel temperature, and power output, those are all output variables of the PV related objects.

Keep in mind that not all EnergyPlus objects are available in Openstudio yet, so you might have to add these Output:Variable objects in the IDF file that Openstudio produces.
