We are getting these Aurinco 50 watt thin panels
. Compact 40W panel
that are non-skid. 12 panels
to build a 600 watt system. Now the decision on how to wire it. four panels are aft of the sail no shading. four panels on either side of the sail starting two feet from the boom on center going outboard
Pmax 50 W; Vpm 18 V; Ipm 2.8 A; Voc 22 V; Isc 3.1 A
Should I wire pairs or panels together in series then put those in parallel and split the whole thing into port and starboard sections with separate controllers that accept 24volts. The wiring
conduit space is tight will going to 24volt input to the controller help enough with wire size and voltage drop.
Should it all go into one good MPPT
controller or run two controllers for some redundancy.
Thanks for any input
