How to include bypass diode in solar module modelling

hi,
I am working on mismatch losses in solar strings. I need to put bypass diode across 36 cells out of 72 cell module. i.e. 2 bypass diode across a module. I am using Mathcad for modelling.
please suggest me the ideas for the same.

    Why use 2, when 1 will do ?
    Are you talking diodes in series to achieve a voltage spec, or in parallel to pass some amount of current ? Diode or Schottky diode? (different Vf spec)
    Can you post a quick sketch of what the heck you are thinking of, it makes no sense to just add diodes. What's the Mfg/Brand/Model of panel - it may already have diodes. Your Charge Controller may already provide this function.

    thank you for reply.
    I dont have solar panel for the time being. I am doing simulation only.
    if u still can suggest, please..

    thanks
