Autonomous Drone Inspection
Drones are deployed to fly autonomously according to the pre-planned flight path that has been programmed to suit your solar plant’s terrain.
This allows the drone to collect high-quality aerial data from the plant. The autonomous drone inspection process helps ensure that all solar panels are thoroughly scanned to identify any hidden defects or issues in the plant.
AI and Machine Learning
Using AVA’s proprietary AI software, we help process the thermal and visual imagery obtained from the drone to help identify and localise abnormalities in the plant.
With our cutting-edge machine learning algorithms, our software analyses each single panel in your solar farm(s) to detect any potential or omitted defects that could reduce the performance of your asset.
Some examples of the defects that we detect include:
Vegetation Overgrown / Shading
Dirt Deposits / Excessive Soiling
Defective Panels – e.g., Bypass diodes, Micro-cracks, Hotspots, Potential Induced Degradation (PID), Delamination and Internal Corrosion, Snail Trail Contamination, etc.
Electrical Issues / Faulty Cables
Inverter / String Level Problems – e.g., Open Circuit Strings, Short Circuit Strings, Underperforming Strings, etc.

Detect Abnormalities in the Plant
Our advanced AI software is used to analyse the data collected to detect abnormalities or potential defects within the plant
Localise and Emphasise Issues in the Plant
We localise and emphasise the problems in the plant, in which they are marked, geo-referenced and reviewed for immediate rectification
Receive an In-depth and Detailed Report
We identify the problems of the plant’s energy production loss in your AVA's Cloud dashboard account
AVA’s software has a 100% accuracy rate in the defect detection of solar plants.
Actionable Insights and Reports Enable Results
AVA’s robust software converts the aerial inspection imagery of PV plants into detailed analytics to manage the asset’s condition and performance.
The report can be viewed on your AVA’s Cloud dashboard account. You will receive:
AVA's software account for your organisation
Each solar PV plant in your portfolio, along with reports for each inspection
A digitised and geo-referenced PV plant, with each module individually marked and assigned to a string or combiner
We support you in the different phases of your needs:
We help identify all the possible defects related to the solar panels prior to your asset transfer. We also provide a baseline assessment of the plant to help with your performance tracking.
We conduct annual checks on the solar panels to ensure that your plant is defect-free, and is always performing at its maximum capacity.
We help ensure that your solar panels are free from defects before the warranty period ends. You can rest assured knowing that the PV system handed over is defect-free.
We provide you with a better understanding about the condition of your coveted solar power plant prior to bidding. This helps with predicting the plant’s performance and costs for the future.
