Bypass Diodes Figure 67 (page 56)
« on: March 17, 2012, 01:57:15 PM »
The bypass diodes depicted are configured incorrectly, i.e. they're forward biased. During normal (unshaded) operation, bypass diodes are reversed biased (not conducting). During a shading event, the bypass diode corresponding to the shaded cell(s) becomes forward biased and conducts current from the unshaded cells.
