“How can we maximize the effects of a solar panel?”

This a pertinent question for any renewable energy engineer. Let us illustrate one potential problems with solar panels. When a solar cells are in series, they are all linked together. Since they often cover a long distance, external effects such as temperature and dust will vary. Consequently, each solar panel will have a different temperature, and the higher the temperature, the less efficient it is. Since a series of solar cells are only as efficient as the hottest one, then we run into a major problem.

Luckily, humanity had the ingenuity to invent the solar maximizer. The Solar maximizer optimizes the solar cells to mitigate the impinging effects of solar cells in series.
