Combining differing Series Arrays
I have 4 Mitsubishi 120W panels 17.6V Vmp, 22.0V Voc, 6.84A Imp, 7.36A Isc ...
I located some Luxen 130W panels 17.6V Vmp, 21.6V Voc, 7.39A Imp, 8.69A Isc
I plan on 4 series panels per array with 3 arrays in parallel, 12 panels per CC, 2CC's.
so there would be 1 array of Mits. and 2 of Luxen's on one of the CC's.
The Mits. Array = 70.4V Vmp, 88.0V Voc, 6.84A Imp, 7.36A Isc
the Luxen array = 70.4V Vmp, 86.4V Voc, 7.39A Imp, 8.69A Isc....no problems here so far, each array is 4 in series and they are all matched panels
But what happens when the array outputs are combined? the Vmp's match but the Imp does not?
Will the lower Imp be what the CC 'sees'?
Should I reassign the 4 Mitsubishi panels to another job?
