Pv Panel Review with Thermal Drone

Pv Panel Review with Thermal Drone Pv Panel Inspection by Thermal Drone plays an important role in solar power plants quality control – monitoring, online fault diagnosis, safety protection of equipment and energy saving in the production process through infrared thermal imaging technology.

What is infrared thermal imaging?

Infrared thermal imaging is a method of using infrared radiation and thermal energy to collect information about SPP sites to obtain images of objects or temperature information of solar panels, even in low visibility environments.

It is imperative to ensure the quality of the solar power plant for adequate electricity generation, cost savings and long lifetime of the panels. In order to guarantee the safety and effective deployment of these solar power systems, it is necessary to have timely thermal imaging of Solar Power Plants.

Our main purpose of using Thermal Mapping is to detect any malfunction in the solar panels at SPP sites and the owners can claim warranty/replacement from the manufacturers. Adopting the latest UAV technology, our accurate thermographic inspection services ensure reliability, affordability and the highest accuracy. Our trained drone pilots use world-class drones with thermal sensors for aerial inspection while maintaining safety at solar power plants. Drone surveys and UAV inspections produce premium quality data for detailed solar power panel analysis.

Precision solar power plants inspection can detect cell defects, cell failure, dirt on photovoltaic cells, interconnection failure, solar cell degradation, reduced operational efficiency, etc.

Solar power plants are an important part of our energy infrastructure but can be difficult and expensive to inspect. This is where our drones come in as MapperX. We use state-of-the-art drones with thermal imaging capabilities to provide a detailed inspection of solar power plants.

We offer solar panel inspection services with thermal drone to help you get the most out of your solar power plants. Our detailed solar PV inspections, reports and analysis can help you maximize your return on investment.

Solar PV site inspection with a thermal drone not only helps to identify defects in the cells of solar panels but also provides data on the performance of an entire solar power plant. By looking at how well the solar power plant is performing and identifying any faults, you can save time and money on maintenance and repairs. Thermal mapping is an essential part of any drone-based solar panel inspection service.

Our team has many years of experience in the solar industry and we use the latest technology to get the most accurate results. We also offer competitive prices that fit your budget.

Thermal Mapping Helps Identify Flaws in Solar Panels

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

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

Superior Data Compared to Traditional Examinations

Solar panel inspection by drone is a more efficient way to perform visual inspection of solar panels. Compared to ground-based inspections, drones can provide a higher resolution image of solar panels and their surroundings. This can allow for a more thorough inspection, helping to identify potential problems with the solar panels or the surrounding area.

What are the Benefits of Using Drones to Inspect Solar Power Plants?

The most important reason for the solar industry to switch to drone inspection is its speed and efficiency. Drones operate with an ultra-fast efficiency, covering 1 megawatt of solar energy in less than 1 day. This can take about 1 to 2 months when done using traditional methods.

Another benefit of using solar drone inspection is reduced costs. It is much cheaper to enlist the professional services of 1 to 2 drone pilots to inspect a large solar PV plant in one day than to use a team of skilled technicians to manually inspect each solar panel, which can take over 1 month. There is also no downtime when conducting a solar drone inspection, unlike monitoring panels that you have to unplug and shut down during the manual inspection. Drone maintenance for solar power plants is also usually not very expensive.

Drone inspection on PV panels allows you to solve problems as soon as they arise. Drones have the ability to inspect each panel and identify faults so you can efficiently resolve these issues and immediately increase the overall productivity of your solar modules.

Thanks to the MapperX software we have developed in conjunction with drone inspections, we can detect malfunctions in solar power plants in a short time and create a world-class technical failure report for users. You can click to learn more about What is Photovoltaic PV Solar Energy System?
