Solar panel heating is a big problem in most of the regions where solar light
heats the solar panel and decreases the efficiency of the panel. The research article
proposes a novel approach to increase the efficiency of the solar panel by utilizing any
method mentioned in the literature survey. The device which is proposed utilizes the
same system but in an optimized way. The optimization of the utilization of a solar
panel cooling system is necessary to take maximum power from the solar panel. The
device proposed can successfully optimize the utilization of the cooling system and
increase the efficiency of the panel. Also, this device increases the efficiency of the
cooling device so that it can cool the panel efficiently. The temperature of the solar
panel is analyzed by thermal imaging camera and thermal image analysis. The thermal
image camera is mounted through a servo motor which rotates at a 360o angle and
monitors the temperature of the solar panel.

Keywords: IPVTS, Region of interest (ROI), Servo motor, Solar Panel, Thermal image analysis.
