Some details on our installation

Here is a circuit diagram of our solar installation.
It consists of 10 panels connected in series, each producing about 28 V. These consist of 60 cells also connected in series, so we have 600 solar cells in a series connection, producing over 280 V DC. This is then inverted in the SMA Sunny Boy 4000US grid-tie inverter.

In my next post, I will talk about some of the headaches of having the cells connected in series, namely, the problem of shade.
