Parallel Series

:: Parallel Connecting - 12V System ::

Parallel Connecting solar panels gives higher current. And voltage will remain the same. Parallel Connecting is best for us. Because we do not need high voltage. Normal battery is 12v. And by selecting high voltage require higher voltage charge controller. To connect solar panels in parallel we have to connect plus + to plus and minus - to minus. See the picture for details:

:: Series Connecting - 24V System ::

By connecting Solar Panels in series connection. It will increase Voltage and current Amps. will remain the same. To connect solar panels in series we have to connect plus + to - minus on next panel. See the picture for details. In this example we have connected 2 solar panels in series which will give 24v output.

:: Series and Parallel Connecting - 24v System ::

If we are creating a 24v system. So then we have to connect two solar panels in series and connect two series connected panels in parallel as showed in figure under. Which increases voltage to 24v and when we have connected two other 24v connected solar panels in parallel so voltage remains same and increases current Amps. If we want to increase output current on 24v so we connect more solar panels in parallel same way under as shown in figure under.
