The nonlinear wave phenomena in the vicinity of Korteweg-de Vries (KdV) equation have been derived to study the salient features of solitons in a complex plasma consisting of Maxwellian electrons, ions, and cold dust with the effect of dust charge fluctuation. The reductive perturbation method has been applied to the dynamical system causeway and the derived KdV equation predicts different natures of solitons in complex plasma. The dynamics of the soliton propagation in the considered plasma constituents in ionospheric auroral regions exhibits rarefactive solitons, which is an interesting feature. The dust charge fluctuation by the increasing impact of electrons leads the nonlinear effect to be tending to zero. Because of which, the formation of a narrow solitary wave packet with the generation of high energy becomes possible and results in the phenomena of soliton radiation. In order to probe this further, we derive a modified KdV equation to study soliton propagation which, in turn, indicates the possibility of the shock formation in solitary waves.
