So in order to save some money, I decided to build my own solar panel. So far I have built the frame and souldered 6 rows of solar cells, each with 9 cells. I have been having an issue with finding directions on how to wire them together. Do I want to connect the cell rows in series or parallel?
It seems to me that I would want to wire them in parallel but I am concerned that if one of the cells goes out I will lose all the power generated by the cells behind it, but this is how I've been seeing it done it most of the videos I have come across. Can anyone help me out with this? Maybe someone who has built a panel themselves could post up a picture or two of the wiring or explain how they did it?
Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
