Renewable energy sources are expected to play a key role in the global push for carbon neutrality. The operation and maintenance (O&M) of renewable power plants is expected to become increasingly important for maintaining stable electricity grids. In this context, radar satellite-based remote sensing solutions can detect mm level land displacements in the vicinity of renewable power plants. This information can help plant operators detect possible abnormalities in the plant structure and plan corrective O&M actions.

What is InSAR?
Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) analysis is a radar technique which uses the phase difference between two or more SAR images to estimate the levels of land displacement or surface elevation at a particular location. InSAR analysis can be used to cost-effectively monitor critical infrastructure assets. Used alongside traditional monitoring techniques or on a standalone basis, InSAR analysis results can help in the mitigation of geotechnical risks associated with large infrastructure projects.

What can you expect?
This webinar will introduce some fundamental concepts of InSAR analysis, especially in the context of land displacement monitoring. A case study from a solar power plant will also be demonstrated on Synspective’s Land Displacement Monitoring platform.

i) Conceptual introduction to InSAR analysis
ii) How InSAR analysis can be used to measure land displacement?
iii) Case study of a solar power plant
