I was thinking about solar panels for a while and a question popped into my head which i still can't answer nor test it, and i want to know if this would actually work:
If I get a 2x12v solar panels and connect them in series i should get a 24v output, that's stright forward. What in thinking though is, lets say:
I get a 15w solar panel and a 150w solar panel So: 15w = 18V 0.8A 150w= 18V 8A
If I connect them in series i will definitely get 32V, but how much Amps would I get?
At first I thought that it would divide and supply around 4.4A, but after a little thinking i thought that won't happen.. it should actually supply 8A if you follow the Ohms law
So if it puts out 34V and the resistance is nearly 1 Ohm or less then it should provide over 30A of current, but the max the panels can provide are 8A and 0.8A, but since they are in a series the Amps won't add up.. so it should stay at 8A since that is the peak? It's a generator and not a load so the current should not be divided by them?
So the final output should be 38V 8A?which would be 272w? It doesn't add up but it makes sense that it would push 8A out..
Am I right here? Searching online did not give me anything back.. and I'm not well knowledged in electricity, I only started learning it as a hobby not long ago.
If you know the answer please explain it and what are the implications here and what would the actual output be if my conclusion os wrong. would be a valuable knowledge!
Thank you in advance
