In this paper, solar photovoltaic technology and electrostatic dust removal technology are combined to design a solar electrostatic precipitator, and its operation effect and dust removal performance are studied. Starting from optimizing the structure of the dust precipitator, the electrode structure of the dust precipitator was improved, the area of dust collector per unit volume was increased, and the dust removal efficiency was improved. By changing different working conditions, different solubility, different voltage, and different dust removal efficiency. Finally, compared the dust removal efficiency of the finned tubular and snowflake dust precipitator. The results show that the snowflake dust precipitator works stably in sunny and cloudy weather, and the dust removal effect is the highest, followed by dry powder, and the cement dust removal effect is the worst. It is determined that the change of voltage within the set range has little influence on the dust removal efficiency, and the dust concentration has a great influence on the dust removal efficiency.
