Abstract: The energy consumed by the people around the world for one year is equal to the emission of power by the sun in one minute. Hence inventors have invented photovoltaic solar panels absorb sunlight as a source of energy to generate electricity. The solar panel efficiency depends on many factors, in which one of the factor in its defects. This project deals with design and fabrication of the defect detecting setup that helps to detect the intensity of the solar panel. The major concern of our project is to detect the percentage of the defect more precisely. Keeping the above mention criteria in mind all calculations was performed. The model was designed using AUTOCAD for 2D modeling and CATIA for 3D modeling. The overall cost of the project is certainly low as compared to the commercially available solar panel defect detector.
