Artificial Intelligence and Solar Energy
Solar panels can fail due to various factors such as heat, pollution and damage. Artificial intelligence (AI) can play an important role in improving the efficiency and reliability of solar power plants.
Thermal Inspection in Solar Power Plants
One of the reasons why solar panels fail is heat. Solar panels convert the heat from sunlight into the electrical energy they produce. However, excessive heat can reduce the performance of solar panels and even cause them to fail.
MapperX AI-based software solutions can be used to monitor the temperature condition of solar panels and detect faults. By analyzing the surface temperature and temperature distribution of solar panels, AI detects panels at risk of overheating. This enables early repair or replacement of PV panels, helping to prevent failures and energy loss.
What is Aerial Thermography with Drone?
Drone aerial thermography is an inspection method using drones equipped with specialized thermal cameras. This technique creates thermal and RGB images of objects through thermal cameras that measure the surface temperatures of solar panels. When used in solar power plants, this technology allows to precisely analyze the temperature profiles of panels and other components.
Advantages of Aerial Thermography in Solar Power Plants with Drones
Fast and Efficient Monitoring: Drones can quickly scan the panels of solar power plants over a large area, resulting in a much faster monitoring process than traditional manual methods.
Accuracy and Precision: Thermal cameras can precisely measure the temperature variations of panels, providing accurate data for early warning systems and regular maintenance.
Cost Savings: Compared to traditional methods, drone thermography inspections of PV panels offer a lower cost and more efficient solution.
Drone Aerial Thermography Applications in Solar Power Plants
Performance Analysis of Panels: Drones can evaluate the performance of PV panels by determining their surface temperatures.
Effective Maintenance Planning: Thermal and RGB images identify panels and components that require maintenance, enabling more effective planning of maintenance processes.
Fire and Security Monitoring: Thermal cameras can identify potential fire risks so that early intervention can be provided and security measures can be taken in a timely manner.

Why Do Solar Panels Fail?
Solar panels can fail due to various factors such as heat, pollution and damage.
Solar panels convert the heat from sunlight into the electrical energy they produce. However, excessive heat reduces the performance of solar panels and can even cause them to fail.
Solar panels can become dirty from dust, bird droppings and other causes. This pollution can increase the heat of solar panels and reduce their performance.
Solar panels can be damaged by wind, frost and other external factors. Damage can reduce the performance of PV panels or cause them to fail.
