Solar energy is one of the cleanest form of energy which is available in
abundance at Earth surface, as the earth resources (fossil fuel, natural gas) are going to
deplete one day due to continuous intervention of humans. So it’s the best time to use the
alternative resources for the power generation as the demand is continuously increasing
due the change in lifestyle of human and due to the modernization of power system
network. Solar energy is the sustainable power source that will satisfy the future energy
needs .To exploit the maximum output and increase the efficiency of solar panels, surface
of PV panels always should be clean and free from dust particles,residue particle and
birds poaching which can be an obstacle for high efficiency .This paper present a cleaning
robot that detect the obstructions and cleans the dust on the photovoltaic surface and the
purpose is accomplished by a hardware model and circuit simulation is done using
Proteus Softwarewhich are validated with the help of MATLAB 2020.
