    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    IEC TS 62446-3:2017(E) defines outdoor thermographic (infrared) inspection of PV modules and plants in operation. This inspection supports the preventive maintenance for fire protection, the availability of the system for power production, and the inspection of the quality of the PV modules. This document lays down requirements for the measurement equipment, ambient conditions, inspection procedure, inspection report, personnel qualification and a matrix for thermal abnormalities as a guideline for the inspection.
