Online –“The cause for poor performance in solar panels can be anything from impurities in the semiconductor material due to a construction failure to broken cells, broken glass, water leakage, broken soldering points, worn down sub strings, defective bypass diodes, delamination of the semi-conductor material or defective connectors, to name just a few of the possible causes.
“Whatever the cause may be, an infrared thermal imaging camera will help the operator to find out where the cause is located and it will play an important part in finding out what’s causing the solar panel failure.
