Solar PV Plant Survey using UAV

Solar PV Plant Survey

Drones are nowadays evolving as the most accessible tool in the solar energy sector. Due to environmental conditions and logistical issues maintenance of solar power plants has always remained a challenge. Our Drone base technology can carry out quicker, safer, accurate and cost effective inspection of a plant effortlessly, that helps run the plants at its peak efficiency uninterruptedly.

We Provide

We use Advanced Image Processing algorithms and Thermal Sensors on drones to detect abnormalities such as hot-spots, vegetation encroachment, dust covers etc. This technology provides information like exact module number, position and temperature details.

We can Deliver a Range of Different types of Fault Detection Including

  • Faulty Cells Faulty cells operate at a temperature different to that of normal cells, making them easy to detect with infrared technologies.
  • String Errors Accurately locate costly string errors – found on solar farms using string inverters that could otherwise affect the performance of entire rows
  • Defective Diodes Thermal imaging allows for the early detection of defective diodes, reducing potential voltage loss through photovoltaic modules.
  • Debris Detect and locate debris that could otherwise cause risks to equipment and the environment.

We Support Solar Farm Engineering and Construction

Use drone surveying and mapping to plan and construct solar farm sites. Review 2D and 3D imaging to help accurately design string locations for maximum land use and solar charging.

Drive higher energy yields Perform thermal surveys of solar farms, leveraging solar string analysis to identify under performance issues. Inspect racking & mounting, inverters, panels, site vegetation or soiling issues quickly and inexpensively at utility-scale solar farms to maximize the site’s revenue.
