Thank you all for the great replies . I have a total of 12 panels on the east ( 1 group of 8 and a second group 6 feet away of 4). On the west I have a group of 4 panels that are just over the ridge line from the group of 4 panels on the east . On the south I have another group of 8 . I was...
The inverter is a Deye 8kw it has two mppt inputs that will accept a pv voltage of 100-500 vdc , the mppt range is 125-425 vdc . One of the mppt inputs will connect to an array of 8- 370 w panels . The other input will be used for the two groups of 4 panels
I have 4 panels on the East and 4 panels on the west of my home . I would like to connect them and run them into one of the mppt inputs of the inverter . All panels have a ts4-a-0 optimizer . Should I
1) connect them all in series ?
2 connect the two groups of 4 in parallel ?
Suppose two similar arrays are on two sides of the roof and connected together with blocking diodes into a mppt input . As the sun progresses across the sky will the power available into the inverter be the same as using 2 mppt inputs ?
