A dataset of functional and defective solar cells extracted from EL images of solar modules

Project README

A Benchmark for Visual Identification of Defective Solar Cells in Electroluminescence Imagery

This repository provides a dataset of solar cell images extracted from high-resolution electroluminescence images of photovoltaic modules.

An overview of images in the dataset. The darker the red is, the higher is the
likelihood of a defect in the solar cell overlayed by the corresponding color.

The Dataset

The dataset contains 2,624 samples of 300x300 pixels 8-bit grayscale images of functional and defective solar cells with varying degree of degradations extracted from 44 different solar modules. The defects in the annotated images are either of intrinsic or extrinsic type and are known to reduce the power efficiency of solar modules.

All images are normalized with respect to size and perspective. Additionally, any distortion induced by the camera lens used to capture the EL images was eliminated prior to solar cell extraction.

Annotations

Every image is annotated with a defect probability (a floating point value between 0 and 1) and the type of the solar module (either mono- or polycrystalline) the solar cell image was originally extracted from.

The individual images are stored in the images directory and the corresponding annotations in labels.csv.

Usage

In Python, use utils/elpv_reader in this repository to load the images and the corresponding annotations as follows:

from elpv_reader import load_dataset
images, proba, types = load_dataset()

The code requires NumPy and Pillow to work correctly.
