Bypass diode failures are typically the result of poor manufacturing or construction damage, right?

09 April 2017

Our inspections have shown this is not necessarily the case…..

Last year we inspected an 18MW site and amongst the identified defects were 187 activated bypass diodes. Using our report, these modules were subsequently replaced by the EPC.

10 months later we re-inspected the solar farm and all 187 modules previously identified had been replaced, but a further 46 modules were showing activated bypass diodes in different locations of the site.

Using our SolarGain inspection comparison feature, it is very easy to identify changes to your solar asset over time.

Regular and accurate aerial thermographic inspections will help you keep your solar asset optimised.
