Drone-enabled solar panel anomaly detection
Drones drastically increase the speed and efficiency in identifying hardware problems in large solar farms. CAN·UAS offers drone inspection services to identify issues such as heated cells, short circuited modules or open loops (at both a substring level or even an entire module).
Aerial imagery is easy, fast, accurate and safe to obtain and encompasses both thermal data (to identify electrical component problems) as well as visual data (to ascertain whether the thermal anomalies are in-fact caused by soiling or physical damage to the panels).
We conduct smart drone inspections of large acreages of monocrystalline and polycrystalline panels (more efficient inspections) or thin film panels (less efficient inspections) to identify defective cells, broken bypass diodes, moisture intrusion, delamination or cracks among other faults which we identify due to their specific thermal patterns.
