Using the U5850 Series True IR Thermal Imager | A Keysight Application Brief
Online — This applications story looks at the use of thermal imaging as a method to expedite identification of faulty Photovoltaic (PV) solar cells, especially in solar generation panels and “farms”.
Solar cell power generation systems use a collection of PV panels to convert sunlight into electrical energy using the photoelectric effect. Each panel is made up of several PV modules, each in turn consisting of a matrix of PV cells that convert solar radiation into electricity.
The failure of any PV cell may lead to a drop in power generation causing output yield losses. Continue reading
