Abstract

SHINGLED SOLAR CELL MODULE An embodiment of the present disclosure relates to a solar module comprising: a plurality of super cells arranged in two or more physically parallel rows, each super cell comprising a plurality of solar cells arranged with adjacent solar cells overlapping and conductively bonded to each other to electrically connect the solar cells in series, each solar cell comprising a front surface to be illuminated by sun light during operation of the module and an oppositely positioned rear surface; a first terminal interconnect or plurality of first terminal interconnects extending transversely to the rows to electrically interconnect each solar cell located at a first end of each row; a second terminal interconnect or plurality of second terminal interconnects extending transversely to the rows to electrically interconnect each solar cell located at a second end of each row opposite from the first end; a plurality of hidden tap interconnects extending transversely to the rows along rear surfaces of solar cells at one or more longitudinal positions in the rows between the first and second ends of the rows, the hidden tap interconnects electrically interconnecting the solar cells located at the same one of the one or more longitudinal positions in each row; and a plurality of bypass diodes; wherein the first terminal interconnect or plurality of first terminal interconnects, the second terminal interconnect or plurality of second terminal interconnects, and the plurality of hidden tap interconnects together electrically segment each row into two or more longitudinal segments and electrically connect adjacent row segments in adjacent rows in parallel, thereby forming two or more groups of row segments; and wherein each group of row segments is electrically connected in parallel with a different one of the bypass diodes.
