Abstract: Solar energy is an important source attaining centre stage means of expanding renewable energy. Solar energy is converted into electricity without using battery storage system. The demand for the production of electricity is fulfilled by solar energy. This paper illuminates to find an automated detection for cleaning the PV cells. The cleaning mechanism can be successes by a stepper motor which is tuned to the wiper brush. Dust accumulation is one of the factor which negatively impact the solar panel it reduces the panel efficiency. It continuously clean the solar panel which senses the dust particles on the solar panel and it is automatically clean the dust particle in solar panel. The automatic solar panel consists of four LDR sensor, solar panel and ATmega328 controller and DC servo motor are fixed in solar pane . The sensor synchronization for tracking the sun requires DC gear motor with the gear box mechanism. During the day time the solar panel must face the sun and the sun rays are emitting from the sun is tracked by DC motor which is joined with the imitated solar panel. It helps to rotate the panel proportional to sun and the maximum sunlight will fall in solar panel at a particular time. The incident ray from the sun will be block and the dust accumulation on the surface module. Electrical parameters of solar panel are very response to accumulated dust density. The main processor solar tracker are the most appropriate and the technology is used to increase the efficiency of solar panel and the system controls the two relays DC geared motor driver and a microcontroller. LDR light detector acts as a sensor is used to trace the coordinate the sunlight on both east and west direction. The tracking movement of the solar panel is achieved by teaming a DC servo motor. With the solar panel such that face the panel is always perpendicular to the sun that tracking movement is achieved by coupling a servo motor to the solar panel such that the panel maintains its faces always perpendicular to the sun. It receive the maximum solar irradiance or by electrically tracking the maximum power point under changing condition.
