Fault detection in PV modules based on images

NMBU

When running a PV power plant it is important to have knowledge about faults in modules. It is not easy to find them in a big power plant and one needs to use different techniques. Imaging is one such technique. We are working with one particular type of imaging called photoluminescence imaging and are trying to develop it so that power plants potentially can use it for fault detection.

(Un)sustainable consumption and everyday life

UiO

There is an urgent need to address unsustainable household consumption patterns to mitigate climate change and environmental disaster. Yet this is easier said than done. This talk draws on a decade of research in Asia and Norway to discuss the complexity of consumption through a focus on how people eat, live and move around. Finally, it suggests possible avenues for sustainable change.

Hyperspectral imaging: a nudge to save the planet

NMBU

My research may lead to a significant reduction of waste in the production of solar cells. Solar cells are slices of solidified silicon. In the solidifying process defects reducing the quality may occur. In lack of a measurement tool, the industry must guess where the defects are. By use of Hyperspectral imaging, my research has led to the invention of a tool to locate the defects.
