É como se fosse o encadeamento das unidades de células fotovoltaicas, pelo que percebi. Contexto/explicação:
One of the major process steps in creating silicon based photovoltaic (PV) solar panels is the interconnection of solar cells or stringing. Stringing cells together allow the cells to work together to form a larger power generation system. Strings of cells are then laid side by side and connected together to make a PV solar panel.
The industry is very quality and cost driven. Each cell in a panel can have a manufacturing cost of around $10-$20 US each. Additional costs are incurred with the fabrication of the strings. Many companies begin operation with hand assembly of strings. In their individual form and in fact until laminated into a panel solar cells are very fragile.
What is a solar cell string? A solar cell string is created when two or more cells are interconnected electrically creating "string" of cells.
Strings of cells are then assembled typically side by side to form a "Solar Panel". The strings are then interconnected so the cells of the panel work together as a system to produce electricity from solar energy.
