Abstract
Thermographic inspection of utility systems is a well established procedure with a high payback to the user. The procedures appear to be deceptively simple and straightforward, which sometimes leads to poor inspections. Parameters which must be considered to achieve good results are-solar loading, circuit loading, target size and target emittance. These factors and their effects on inspections of various systems are discussed.
