Thermal Drone DJI Mavic 3 T
Panel inspection with the Thermal Drone DJI Mavic 3 T allows you to stay informed about the performance of your PV system. It provides information on energy consumption and production, as well as possible damage to your solar system. Studying solar power plants is important because without monitoring it is impossible to determine if your solar panels are operating at full capacity.
While system monitoring is considered a minimum requirement, detecting and identifying panel failures in large solar systems can be a complex process. Tracking systems help detect low-performance areas, but advanced devices such as the Thermal Drone DJI MAvic 3 T need to be used because it takes more time to find the specific panel that is damaging the array output.
Solar Pv Audit Use of Artificial Intelligence Drones to Speed Up
Compared to traditional solar inspection, the use of drones has proven to be more effective and efficient due to their speed and accuracy for conducting large-scale aerial solar energy inspections. Drones can ultimately help maintain the health of solar installations while saving much more time and effort than other maintenance options.
Monitoring of Photovoltaic Systems with the Help of Artificial Intelligence Drones
Every photovoltaic system needs regular maintenance. Without proper maintenance, timely repairs and cleaning, it is very likely that there will be a gradual loss in solar PV efficiency at an early stage. The use of drones to check photovoltaic systems for possible damage and abnormalities has now become a widely used option. It is also sometimes used in the early stages of solar panel installation. With drone inspection, technicians no longer need to go out and check each panel individually using a hand-held device. For access to the solar panel inspection system, the fundamentally superior thermal drone may need DJI Mavic 3 technology.
How is Thermographic Examination Performed in Drone and GES Sites?
Drones are highly technological devices that can help detect heat anomalies in solar power plants at an unimaginable speed. Drones with artificial intelligence are typically flown over solar systems and power plants at a height of several meters and are configured to record a bird’s-eye view of the entire system.
Temperature differences captured by drones can easily detect any anomalies in the solar modules. It is the thermal imaging cameras in drones that detect malfunctions and other abnormal situations in the system according to temperature differences.
Systems are also often displayed with real image cameras. The system inspector can track the flight and, if necessary, direct the pilot to critical points. Drone technology guides technicians directly to the problem and greatly reduces the time required for inspection. This way the maintenance team has an excellent overview of current solar issues so they can immediately put precise troubleshooting mechanisms in place to resolve them. In addition, drone inspections are recorded for later analysis.
What Errors and Damages Can Drones Detect in Pv Systems?
There are many anomalies that drones can detect, ranging from problems that are easy to fix to more complex ones. Here are some examples:
- Storm or thunderstorm damage
- Communication error
- Module failures
- Damage from animal bites
- Incorrect wiring
- Cracks (in solar cells, glass)
- Defective bypass diodes
For more reliable results, drone inspections should be carried out on cloudless and dry days as much as possible.
What Are the Benefits of Using a Drone to Study Solar Systems?
The most important reason why the solar energy industry is controlled by drone is its speed and efficiency. The drones run at an ultra-fast efficiency to cover 1 megawatt of solar energy in less than 10 minutes. Another benefit of using solar drone inspection is that it reduces costs. Hiring the professional services of 1 to 2 drone pilots to inspect a large solar site in one day is much more convenient than hiring a team of skilled technicians to manually inspect each solar panel, which can take more than a week. Drone maintenance is also usually not very expensive. Finally, drone inspection allows you to solve problems immediately when they arise. Drones have the ability to inspect each panel and identify faults so you can address these issues efficiently and thus immediately improve the overall efficiency of your solar modules.
Thanks to the MapperX software we have developed together with drone inspections, we detect the failures in solar power plants in a short time and create a world-class technical failure report for users. You can click to get more detailed information about Pv Panel Review with Thermal Drone.
