1. A method comprising:

  • coupling inputs of a power converter across a string of photovoltaic modules;

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

    dividing a current output by the string of photovoltaic modules 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 link,wherein the second current is greater than the first current.
