Los propietarios de plantas de energía fotovoltaica y sus inversores tienen como principal interés que cada proyecto fotovoltaico cumpla con las expectativas contractuales, siga las mejores prácticas de seguridad y se adecúe a todos los estándares regulatorios de la industria.
El desarrollo de nuevas tecnologías ha permitido que los paneles solares tengan hoy en día una mayor eficiencia y un menor costo. Las empresas de O&M, por su parte, trabajan continuamente en el desarrollo de nuevos métodos para la inspección y mantenimiento de plantas fotovoltaicas con el fin de alargar la vida útil de los activos y maximizar su producción.
Wind turbines are exposed to various environmental factors that could damage them and, depending on their location, they are more prone to some types of damage than others.
Deterioration of wind turbines and lack of inspections could reduce the lifetime of wind turbines and in the worst case could lead to a tragedy.
Inspections maximise the efficiency of wind turbines in energy production and help O&M companies.
Preolix recently gave, together with the drone operator FlyWorkDrone and the Spanish Red Cross, a training focused on the inspection of solar plants with drones and thermal cameras. The aim of this training is to create the necessary foundations for unemployed people who are looking for a change in their professional career.
Colaborar con empresas de drones vs poseer drones propios para la inspección de plantas fotovoltaicas
When it comes to considering whether or not to purchase equipment for the inspection of photovoltaic plants, there are several options depending on the type of inspection we want to perform, because this will also depend on the type of drone we are going to use and several other factors to consider.
Whether you are an O&M manager looking to deploy drones to optimise the maintenance of your customers' solar assets, a solar plant owner or a solar energy company, this article will help you determine the best choice between owning drones or not, as the case may be, for the inspection of photovoltaic plants.
The photographic survey is the initial stage prior to the installation of photovoltaic panels for self-consumption. It involves a technical analysis of the space where the installation is to be carried out, taking into account the dimensions, physical and geographical characteristics of the site. Once the photographic survey has been carried out, the orthomosaic is created and then the measurements are calculated in autocad. The result is a three-dimensional orthomosaic with an editable autocad plan containing all the elements of the roof and the dimensions ready to design what will be the self-consumption installation.
Before inspecting a solar plant with drones and thermal cameras we must be sure that we have all the requirements to carry out this work.
In this article we explain in detail everything you need to take into account before going to the field, so that you can carry out a successful and quality inspection.
Inspection of a solar plant with thermal orthomosaic vs. digital twin with individual thermal image analysis
To perform a thermal study of solar photovoltaics with drones, data can be collected in different methodologies, among which two stand out; the thermal orthomosaic and the digital twin with individual analysis of the thermal images.
We have made a flight simulation with each methodology on a 2MW photovoltaic installation to present you a real comparison of flight time of each one, amount of images needed, overlaps and results obtained.
Preolix and Naturgy create a partnership for state-of-the-art solar plant management using drones and AI software.
Preolix S.L. and Naturgy Energy close an agreement for an alliance that will benefit both parties in the field of renewable energies.
Inspection with drones and the analysis of specific data on the type of anomalies that are occurring makes the maintenance process much more efficient, reduces times and allows us to keep track of the operation of the photovoltaic system over the course of its life.
Identifying possible damage to a photovoltaic plant, such as string, rows, dirt, hot spots, etc., could prevent major losses in energy production, economic losses and possible fires.
