I want to control the temprature and dust on the surface of the pv panels working on a solar farm. Please share your ideas to make it possible.

Perhaps hooking up a microprocessor to monitor the energy generated by your panels may work?
To elaborate, you would need to make or retrieve a 'mode’l of your energy generation depending on the weather/time of the year (due to the varying angles of the sun) and then grab the run-time readings and compare it to the model, to spot any anomalies.
Since there will be a noticeable drop in power generation/efficiency when there is significant amount of dust covering the panels.
You could also use the same microprocessor to engage some cleaning mechanism automatically I would imagine.

Thank you Jin Lee.
What can be the best way to control the temprature of panels. I am searching for an economic way to control the dust and temprature of pv panels.
