want to run 2 strings on one MPPT

You might find this youtube interesting by @Adam Welch "Solar Panel Shading" https://youtu.be/BRMLvzEgvcE It goes into a detailed explanation and actual experiment related to @ajw22's comments and shading/reverse current in a string of panels. Smile

Interesting indeed.  Always nice to see practical tests confirm or correct the theoretical.

Some notes to the video relating to the original thread question:
The 0.2V~0.5V loss caused by the reverse blocking diode is negligible in an string application with 300+V.
The MOSFET "ideal diode" module is designed to handle much lower voltages.  Very likely to blow up in a string application.

I would like to know what the panel specs are and also what the mppt can handle. That is required to give the man a proper answer I would say. That is besides the fact that all this talking about diodes is not necessary since you don't need them when you parallel 2 strings even though they are not orientated the same.

"The effect of reversely induced electric stress currents has demonstrated to be a very important factor in determining not only the performance and efficiency of PV solar cells and modules, but it has also proven to be a dominant factor in determining the operating lifetime of the cells."

If you can't quantify how much they cost, it's a deal, I'll buy 5 of them for 3 lumps of rocking horse ......
