Do Solar Panels Need Maintenance and Monitoring?

Although solar panels are designed to be durable and can easily withstand severe weather and environmental conditions, it is not unlikely for them to develop any technical fault or get damaged. Moreover, solar panels tend to reduce their output over the years, which is why it is better to keep an eye on the system and maintain it properly to get the most out of it.

Furthermore, the correlated systems, such as invertors and batteries, require regular checks and inspections to ensure the systems are working in perfect condition.

What Happens in Commercial Solar PV Maintenance?

Visual Inspection

A preliminary step involves a visual examination of the solar panels to look for any visible damage, such as cracks, corrosion, hotspots, or loose connections. The inspector will check for dirt, debris, or shading that might reduce the panel’s efficiency.

Performance Testing

Various tools and equipment are used to measure the electrical output of the solar panels. This can include current-voltage (IV) curve tracers or maximum power point trackers to verify that the panels are generating the expected amount of electricity.

Roof Inspection

If the solar panels are installed on a roof, the inspection may involve assessing the condition of the roof to ensure there are no leaks or structural issues that could affect the solar panel’s performance or safety.

Inverter Inspection

The solar inverter is a critical component that converts the DC produced by the solar panels into usable AC. The inspector will check the inverter’s performance and ensure it’s working within specifications.

Infrared Imaging

Thermal imaging cameras can be used to detect hotspots caused by faulty cells, diodes, or connections. Hotspots can indicate areas of potential malfunction or inefficiency that require attention

Wiring and Connections

The inspector will examine the wiring and connections between the solar panels, inverters, and other
components to ensure they are secure and functioning correctly.

Safety Check

Safety is a paramount concern during inspections. The inspector will make sure that the installation adheres to relevant electrical and building codes and that there are no safety hazards present.
