Electroluminescence (EL) imaging inspections of PV power plants can bring a huge improvement in accuracy. The use of InGaAs camera will also make such inspections fast, but the restriction to acquire the images during dusk or evening is a limitation. Performing lock-in EL is a way to go for daylight EL. This paper proposes an extension of the SNR50 quality measure to estimate the quality of a stack of N images and evaluates the impact of some factors over the measured and visual quality of images acquired with InGaAs sensors. The factors analyzed are the characteristics of the noise in the acquired images, the influence of the sun variations and the averaging over multiple acquired images.
