1. A method comprising:

  • coupling a first input of a power converter to a first output of a first photovoltaic module;

    directly connecting the first input of the power converter to an output of the power converter via a direct bypass path;

    dividing a current output by the first photovoltaic module into;

    a first current that flows from the first input of the power converter to the output of the power converter via the power converter, anda second current that flows directly from the first input of the power converter to the output of the power converter via the direct bypass path; and

    directly connecting a second input of the power converter to a second output of a second photovoltaic module, wherein the first photovoltaic module is connected to the second photovoltaic module.
