Step 5: Soldering Bus Wire

Next, after hooking all 3 strings of solar cells up in series, I was ready to get my 22 gauge wires (red and black) ready for soldering. On the ends of my leads from my gauge wires, I connected some connectors to make the process of soldering them down to the bus wire a lot easier. Watch Part 7 of the video to see how I went about doing that.



To help give the inside of the solar panel a nicer look, I used 2 strips of wiremold and ran the wires inside those. This is also seen in Part 7 and Part 8 of the video. Afterward, I took the panel outside in the sun to test the voltage/current of the whole panel to make sure I was getting 18 volts and 3.5 amps in an open circuit and short circuit.


<p>I used to have big problem finding effective ways to build my solar panels and maximizing my solar power.But I am getting better result now, after I stumbled upon this excellent guide I found <a href="http://the-natural-treatment.com/Solarpanel.php" rel="nofollow">HERE</a>. It was a godsend. It gave me great Solar Panel tips and showed me what I was doing wrong before.</p>

<p>hi good day! I'm having my study now about how to make more solar energy like we have today... but I have some concerns regarding the present solar panel today... I hope if you are not busy I would like to get an answer about this concern... how much heat does the solar cells withstand?</p>
<p>Great Stuff! Thank you for the instructable!</p><p>It's also great to see another Robert Smith rocking it!</p>
