Drone by Drone, within the range of industrial inspections it carries out, offers photovoltaic field inspection services for its correct assembly and maintenance, since drones allow observing phenomena that cannot be visualized from the ground.
The drone operating company located in Bilbao has always been characterized by having the latest RPAS technology, allowing us to offer our clients the most advanced tools.
Inspections by drones using FLIR radiometric and high-resolution visible spectrum thermal (or thermal) cameras save maintenance costs on infrastructure, such as solar energy fields and significant savings in maintenance time. Drone by Drone has both the latest advances in cameras such as the FLIR XT, radiometric at 30Hz of maximum resolution, in both multicopter and fixed-wing drones.
The advantages are multiple, since with a single drone flight we get:
- Real-time on-screen checking while flying
- Decrease in human resources employed
- Decrease in realization costs
The main pathologies in solar panels are:
- bypass diode active
- string hot
- string reverse polarity
- potential induced degradation (PID)
- module hot
- module short circuit
Subsequently, in the reports generated, the areas of defects or pathologies in the solar panels can be easily located and seen, and identified, which at first glance go unnoticed and are only visible due to heating of the defective elements. With due processing through specialized software, detailed reports of defects, locations and temperature study are obtained.
