Title: SOLAR MODULE AND ENERGY-GENERATING SYSTEM
Abstract:
The invention relates to a solar module (1), comprising a series circuit, arranged between connection points (3), of bypass diodes (4) having bypass connection points (4.1 to 4.4) at both ends and at all connecting points of the bypass diode series circuit and comprising a series circuit (2) of solar partial modules (6) having partial module connection points (6.1 to 6.4) at both ends and at all connecting points of the solar module series circuit. Each bypass diode (4) is associated with exactly one solar partial module (6). A plurality of semiconductor switches (8.1 to 8.4, 9.1 to 9.4), for disconnecting the solar modular connection points (6.1 to 6.4) from voltage when a disconnection signal is received by means of a safety unit (5), is designed to switch a solar partial module associated therewith to a voltage-free or current-free state. At least one bypass connection point (4.1 to 4.4) is directly connected to the associated partial module connection point (6.1 to 6.4), and at least one bypass connection point (4.1 to 4.4) is connected to the associated partial module connection point (6.1 to 6.4) by means of one of the semiconductor switches (8.1 to 8.4). The invention further relates to an energy-generating system having such a solar module (1).
