Background: 

The purpose of the EASY PV (EGNSS high Accuracy SYstem improving PhotoVoltaic plants maintenance) project is to provide a time and cost effective service as direct response to the growing need expressed by several maintainers and PV field owners to enhance the energy production of their plants.

The added value provided by the employment of GNSS high accuracy solutions as novelty in the RPAS domain is the key driver for the EASY PV turnkey solution.

EASY PV solution is conceived to build up an automatic system for acquiring, georeferencing and processing  both  visible  and  thermal  images  captured by  an  RPAS  equipped  with  a  Galileo/EGNOS  high accuracy receiver, flying over a photovoltaic field. In this way it is possible to easily (i.e. automatically, with safety improvement for operators and saving time) detect the defective module to be replaced.

 

Objectives: 

The purpose of the EASY PV (EGNSS high Accuracy SYstem improving PhotoVoltaic plants maintenance) project is to provide a time and cost effective service as direct response to the growing need expressed by several maintainers and PV field owners to enhance the energy production of their plant.
