I was wondering if anyone could offer me some technical help with a component: the SM74611 smart bypasss diode.
I ordered about 300 a year ago and have been using them for a while, but i've been trying to implement something new and it's not working as expected.
I'm trying to implement a system that boosts current through cells in a solar cell string, when a certain cell is producing less energy because of shadow. This system worked fine without bypass diodes in the system, but i've added them now and it doesn't work anymore.
This raised the question: how does the diode turn back off? (after it started conducting)
