How aerial thermography benefits our advanced monitoring
We want to improve our advanced monitoring even further. To achieve this we need more data to validate our models and calculations..
1. Improve performance loss model
If drone aerial thermography tells us that there are certain anomalies found, we want to be able to say with certainty what type of performance losses these anomalies are causing in the full system. There is no one in the industry who is currently able to do this reliably.
2. Improve monitoring-based detection of defects
If we can continue to improve the intelligence of our software in the future, we might not even need to use the drones to take the aerial thermography images. We can potentially fully detect and diagnose the defects in the solar panels entirely through our advanced monitoring data..
The results of the drone flight cna be seen in the video below.
