Because of global warming due to environmental pollutants, expanding the use of clean energies has gained a special place in all countries. In the meantime, solar energy is one of the most available renewable energies, which despite many researches in this field, still needs to be further investigated and overcome the shortcomings. One of the phenomena that has caused irreparable damage to solar power plants all over the world is the destruction of them due to strong winds. In this regard and in order to protect the solar panels which are produced with great difficulty, a small example of a solar power plant has been simulated in this research by Islamic Azad University, Central Tehran Branch, and the effects of wind on the solar panels have been studied and important results were obtained. Following this research, a new glass, frame and structure was designed to protect the solar panels, which they increase the resistance of the solar power plant against the wind. During this new design, the structure, frame and glass used in the solar panels can withstand wind speed up to 126 km/h. With this wind speed and in the case that the panel is installed at 30 degrees to the ground (the most critical situation), the pressure on the panel surface will be equal to 104234 pascals, and the amount of panel surface and frame bending caused by this pressure are respectively 1.1 mm and 0.2 mm and these changes do not harm our panels. Therefore, these seemingly simple changes can prevent many damages in solar power plants around the world.
