Solar Panel Series and Parallel Calculator

A Solar Panel Series & Parallel Calculator is a useful tool for planning your solar energy setup.

It allows you to calculate the total voltage, current, and power output when solar panels are arranged in series or parallel.

          How to Use

          1. Enter the Specifications of a Single Panel: Input the specifications for one of your solar panels. This should include the panel's max power voltage(Vmp) and max power current (Imp). This information can typically be found on the product datasheet.

          2. Enter the Number of Panels: Specify the number of solar panels you plan to install in your chosen configuration (series or parallel).

          3. Click "Calculate": After you've entered all necessary data, click the "Calculate" button to process the input.

          4. Read the Results: The calculator will provide the max power output, current, and voltage of your solar panel array based on your inputs. It will display separate results for series and parallel configurations, helping you compare the two setups.

          Using a solar panel series & parallel calculator can help you determine the optimal configuration for your specific needs, whether it's maximizing power output, maintaining a particular voltage, or working within the limitations of your charge controller or inverter.

          Remember that the results you get from the calculator are theoretical and actual results may vary due to environmental conditions, the angle of the panels, and the efficiency of the components in your system. Always consult with a solar power professional to confirm the optimal setup for your specific situation.

          You can also make use of our solar load calculator to determine your needs and find all the solar & electrical calculators we created in order to help you plan, size and install your own solar power system here.
