(also called a series or isolation diode) - A diode placed in series with a photovoltaic module or group of modules to prevent the reverse flow of current through the module(s).
A diode which prevents reverse current flow in a circuit, commonly used to prevent a battery from discharging through the array at night.
A semiconductor connected in series with a solar cell or cells and a storage battery to keep the battery from discharging through the cell when there is no output, or low output, from the solar cell. It can be thought of as a one-way valve that allows electrons to flow forwards, but not backwards.
A semiconductor device used to stop the flow of current from one direction, but allow it in the opposite direction.
A diode used to restrict or block reverse current from flowing backward through a module. Also, when connected in a series to a PV string it protects its modules from a reverse power flow and the risk of thermal destruction of solar cells.
A diode installed inline on the positive wire coming from the generator which only allows current to flow in one direction. This stops your DCPM motor from running off of the battery when the wind is not blowing.
A diode used to prevent undesired current flow. In a PV array the diode is used to prevent current flow towards a failed module or from the battery to the PV array during periods of darkness or low current production.
A one-way check valve allowing electricity to flow in one direction.
A diode, used to isolate the solenoid drive components from the rest of the circuit.
