Solar batteries are the essential component in an off-grid solar photovoltaic generation system and used for the purpose of storage. Normally lead acid batteries are used for solar applications and are placed in a battery room where the temperature must be maintained with in safe working limits. The temperature of battery depends on several factors like ambient temperature, load current drawn by the battery, sulphur deposition terminals, charging and discharging cycles. When temperature of a battery increases beyond safe limit problems of heating arises. Heating reduces the battery life and may be one of the reasons of explosion in batteries. The ambient temperature measuring device used in battery room is not sufficient to measure the heat generated by batteries. Installation of a normal camera in battery room is capable to monitor the smoke or spark in battery components but not the amount of temperature so it is also not fulfilling the need. Thermal imaging camera captures heat coming out from a battery and produces a thermal image with temperatures associated with it. This thermal image is used for representing high and low temperatures with a range of maximum and minimum values of temperature. In this paper a heated battery is identified in a battery room for solar photovoltaic generation system and thermal image analysis is performed to determine the regions of high temperature with the help of image segmentation and 3D temperature plot. The image segmentation is done using marker based watershed transform technique to achieve the heated region of interest from thermal image and 3D temperature plot shows the area of maximum temperature with location in thermal image of heated solar battery.
