Using Sunpower solar cells at the World Solar Challenge
In this article I tell something about the use of solar cells at the World Solar Challenge and other contests. How to calculate the effective area of a Sunpower solar cell For the solar panels, t...
Solar panel mismatch loss vs tolerance simulation
Effect of a small solar cell tolerance to the total PV panel power We can see in the article about bypass diodes that just one shaded solar cell may kill the entire panel's power production. When ...
Available bypass diodes
Active bypass diodes The need for lossless diodes The solar bike PV panels, in contrast to common PV panels, have a particular need for bypass diodes. That is because shade appears often and the ...
Bypass diode simulations in solar panels
Solar cells are current sources It is important to know that solar cells are current sources. At solar panels, the solar cells are series connected, the same way as batteries are used. Initially, ...
Solar panels for bicycles
The size of the PV panels The solar bike with two solar panels Since May 2014 I have used the solar bike more than 1000km without any problems. But initially, most people find the solar panels to...
