Abstract

AIR-PV-check is a method using an unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) with an
infrared (IR)-camera for the quality inspection of PV-plants under real
operating conditions. It enables the fast and 100%-control of
PV-plants. Defective modules are detected by their temperature
distribution. Besides the meteorological conditions, the interaction of
defective modules within a string influences the module performance
significantly as the measured and simulated data show. Thus, modules
with extremely high temperatures are predominantly expected / detected
in strings with only one single defective module. Consequently, string
configurations and constellations of defective modules have to be
considered for evaluating the quality of modules, strings and
generators.
