This question is part of the Super Big Solar Panel FAQ from Solar Mango, where expert answers to over 100 important questions on solar panels are provided.


A PV array (or solar array) is a linked collection of solar panels.

What you see in large solar farms are arrays, in which a number of panels are collected together.

The modules in a PV array are usually connected in series to obtain the desired voltage.

The power from the solar array is transported to an inverter which converts the DC power produced by the modules into alternating current that can power lights, motors, and other loads.
