Broken solar cells
I have some broken cells, I know that in a string the power is determined by the lowest power cell. If you took the broken cells and were to make a panel just to use them up, and ran Each cell + to one buss bar and each - to its bus bar, I know it will be .05 vdc, and then install a diode on this and tie that to the busses of the other panels. Would they produce more amp for the system? say the cells were 3x4 and 3.8 watts. and say the broken part was about 1 square inch in one corner .Or just put them in series to get more amps.
