How to control it?


Which type of lights are mostly used for this?


Please suggest.

That’s an incredibly broad question. It really depends on what situation you are trying to replicate sunlight in, and what type of sunlight you are trying to replicate.

I’ve used everything from LED panels to Dinettes and Dinos, to banks of several Arrimax heads to replicate sunlight.

I want to replicate for outdoor scene at 12 noon.

As said above, your options are endless. There is no singular way to replicate sunlight. 

To break it down typically you'd have a singular powerful harsh source (acting as the sun), and then a surrounding softer source acting as the sky (at least that's typically how I'd look at it).

So, with your goal being to achieve an outdoor scene at noon (keeping in mind, I don't know if this is an exterior set, an interior set or if this outdoors... if so you may just want to shoot at noon). I'd imagine you'd want one harsh powerful overhead source, as harsh and as high as possible with a wide beam spread -  maybe a 20k skypan (keeping in mind to operate and rig said fixture requires a skilled crew)... or something of that nature. Then a surrounding softer source, a hypothetical array of space lights, potentially with a very mild diffusion bellow. This, like everything said above is up to personal taste.
