    Hi Jorge,

    Which model of charge controller are you looking at? 

    Generally speaking, the rated max PV input power (W) is governed nominal battery bank voltage.

    Also be mindful of the maximum input voltage of the charge controller. A 150 VDC unit has a max PV string length of 2-3 modules (depending on location and module Voc).
