Infrared Thermography and Photovoltaic Systems

An Infrared Photovoltaic System Survey can detect and document serious defects within operating solar panels that are undetectable by any other means. Performed regularly, infrared inspections of Photovoltaic Systems can help to reduce maintenance costs and ensure system efficiency.

When functioning properly, PV panels should exhibit the uniform thermal patterns. Thermal anomalies may indicate a potential problem involving an individual solar panel or its cells. Typical problems detected during an Infrared Photovoltaic System Survey include:

  • Defective cells within panelsThermogram PV Panel
  • Faulty wiring or equipment
  • Partially shaded or obstructed panels

A leader in commercial and industrial surveys for over 30 years, Jersey Infrared Consultants have been instrumental in pioneering this new application for Infrared Thermography. Members of our staff have co-authored the current industry standards covering Infrared Inspections of Photovoltaic Systems.
