Thermal Mapping Helps Identify Solar Panel Defects

Thermal mapping is a drone-based inspection method that uses thermal imaging to detect problems with solar panels. Thermal imaging works by detecting differences in temperature between objects. This allows inspectors to identify areas that are cooler or hotter than the surrounding area, indicating a defect.

Thermal mapping is incredibly useful for solar panel inspections because it can help identify problems that are difficult or impossible to see with the naked eye. By using thermal mapping, drone operators can get a detailed view of the entire solar panel array and detect any potential problems.

Keep Your Solar Farm in Top Condition

Drones can help identify a wide variety of problems with solar panels and solar farms. By using drone-based solar panel inspections, you can detect issues like cell defects, cell failure, dirt on photovoltaic cells, interconnection failure, degradation of solar cells, and a decrease in operational efficiency. This allows you to fix problems before they become too costly or difficult to fix.

Solar Panel Hotspot Detection

A hot spot on a solar panel is an area that is hotter than the surrounding area. This can be caused by a number of things, including a defect in the panel, dirt or dust accumulation, or shading from nearby objects. Detection of hot spots is essential for the proper maintenance of solar panels.

Thermal imaging can help identify these hotspots so that they can be addressed and repaired before they cause any significant damage.

Superior Data Than Traditional Inspections

Solar panel inspection with a drone is a more efficient way to conduct a visual inspection of solar panels. Compared to ground-based inspections, drones can provide a higher-resolution view of the solar panels and their surroundings. This allows for a more comprehensive inspection and can help identify any potential problems with the solar panels or the surrounding area.

Identify Interconnection Failure

Interconnection failure is a problem that can occur when the wires that connect the solar panels to each other are damaged or corroded. This can cause a decrease in the overall efficiency of the solar panel array and can lead to further problems down the line. Thermal imaging can help identify areas of interconnection failure so that they can be repaired before they cause any significant damage.

Detect Factors That Degrade Solar Cells

Drone inspections can be used to detect the degradation of solar cells. The degradation of solar cells is the gradual loss of performance of solar modules over time. This can be caused by a variety of factors, such as exposure to the elements, physical damage, or electrical faults. By flying a drone over a solar array, operators can get a closer look at the panels and inspect for any degradation.

Detect Particles on Photovoltaic Cells

Solar panel inspection with a drone can help to detect particles such as dirt, dust and moss on photovoltaic cells. PV cells are the part of the solar panel that actually converts sunlight into electricity. If they are covered in dirt or dust, it can decrease their efficiency and performance.

Drone operators can use thermal imaging to detect dirt on PV cells. Thermal imaging works by detecting differences in temperature between objects. This allows inspectors to identify areas that are cooler or hotter than the surrounding area, indicating a build-up of dirt or dust.

Geo-Tagged Data of Solar Panel Farms

We can create a geo-tagged image dataset of a solar panel farm. Not only will this help you get an accurate overview of the entire farm, but it will also help you identify any potential problems with the panels or the wiring.

You can quickly find the exact location of any problems with the solar array. This can help you save time and money on repairs, and keep your solar farm running smoothly.
