this document describes the main factors responsible for the reduction of the efficiency of photovoltaic (PV) solar panel. Those factors are: type of material used, accumulated dust on solar panel, higher temperature, position of the panel, and low area for photon capturing. To achieve higher efficiency, this paper investigated several ways to reduce the effects of the affecting parameters: reducing the temperature of the PV panel, eliminating the dust, controlling the position of the panel and adding a mirror to collect more photons. Those modifications were applied on a laboratory-scale prototype in order to enhance the performance of the (PV) to deliver higher efficiency.
