Abstract

The goal of this work is to develop outdoor defect detection imaging and understand fully its challenges and limitations. The imaging is based on luminescence strategies that will be used for fast and accurate UAV-based inspection system for PV power plants. We studied electroluminescence (EL) acquisition under natural light conditions during several times of the day, under high sun irradiation, to unveil the sunlight noise characteristics towards an InGaAs detector. In order to bring more freedom to a drone-based inspection, we also show the preliminary results of a laser-line based photoluminescence (PL) strategy as a viable method for an outdoor module PL imaging system.
