Drone inspection of Solar Panels with thermographic sensor
What advantages do we get with a drone and thermal camera applied in photovoltaic fields?
RealDron is specialized in Inspections with drones of Solar Panels, both for individuals, companies and photovoltaic fields.
Thermographic inspections developed from Drone or UAS (Unmanned Aerial Systems) technology in the maintenance phase of the photovoltaic solar plant offer multiple advantages in order to optimize the performance of the facilities.
Photovoltaic solar power plants (CSFV) are high-performance infrastructures that require permanent supervision to optimize their correct operation during the 25-30 years of their useful life.
Among the different control and supervision actions in the maintenance phase, we can highlight the thermographic inspections carried out with UAS technology carried out on an annual basis. And it is that the thermographic analysis of the photovoltaic panels, for the detection of defects or deficiencies in the operation, such as hot spots or defective diodes, is essential to maximize the performance of the CSFV.
Advantages of thermographic inspections applied to photovoltaic plants.
The objective of the thermographic inspections of photovoltaic plants is to offer a thermographic analysis of each of the photovoltaic panels, so that we are able to detect, identify and classify all the defects that may prevent the correct functioning of the solar plant.
What are the advantages of thermographic visual inspections?
- Time savings in inspection processes.
- Reduction of supervision and maintenance costs.
- Identification of incidents and breakdowns with geolocated information on breakdowns and incidents (better location in image and map of incidents) for faster intervention.
- Data availability in an app for the on-site maintenance team to more efficiently identify modules to service or replace.
