Optimisers are highly integrated DC-DC converters that replace the need for bypass diodes. Unlike the diodes they replace, solar cell optimisers do not bypass weak cell strings. Instead, they allow each cell string to deliver maximum power under any environmental conditions. This allows harvesting more energy, achieving denser panel layouts, and improving system reliability.

Maxim’s cell-string optimizers are highly integrated DC-DC converters that replace the bypass diode and perform maximum power point tracking (MPPT) deep inside the PV module. By replacing each diode with a MPPT device, the on-off response to performance mismatch is eliminated; every cell-string contributes maximum power without interfering with the power production capability of others. 

Maxim have released new cell-string optimizer technology which allows photovoltaic (PV) panels to harvest significantly more energy and simplifies design complexity for solar installation projects. Maxim’s cell-string optimizers are highly integrated DC-DC converters that replace the bypass diode and perform maximum power point tracking (MPPT) deep inside the PV module.
