There are no curved solar panels in stock. The closest approximation you can get is by wrapping a fuel tank in lots of the small rectangular ones. You might have more luck with mods.

I've tried using near future solar mod but unfortunately with that mod, mass of my satellite getting bigger and not same / close with real life satellite that i tried to make. But i'll try your advice to put lots small rectangular solar panel, and hope this doesn't add too much weight to satellite
Thank you for your respond sir. i really appreciated it.

That looks fantastic!  Not only does it look great, but the part count is kept low- yes the part count is still a big concern for a lot of players.  Instead of pasting a lot of the small panels around a tube, you used just 8 panels.

After several attempts, I finally can make curved solar panels (not really curve but its close) by installing 16 static solar panels on each tubes. And because of that, i got my answer and results from this discussion. So i wanna say thank you very much for everyone who give their time for helping me, hope this can also help someone that wanna make curved solar panel. 

 

Spoiler

16 (8x3) static solar panels on each tubes, width = 1600, length = 02500.
