Mismatched Solar Panels- Same amps, different volts and watts

Mismatched Solar Panels- Same amps, different volts and watts

Views:21364|Rating:4.94|View Time:6:11Minutes|Likes:434|Dislikes:5 Here’s another of our mismatched solar panel series,. We’ve taken two solar panels, one 24V 100W and one 12V 50W. They both have a current rating of 3 amps. We tested to see which method of wiring them together, series or parallel, works best. We have an MPPT solar charge controller and a […]
