What would happen if the solar panels deployed in the system have different electrical characteristics?

When solar panels with different electrical characteristics, interconnected with each other are deployed in the system, it creates serious power losses & adversely affects the overall energy generation. These losses are referred as “Mismatch losses”. The current (Isc) in the string in which the panels are connected in series with each other, is limited to the lowest output current from any of the panel. Thus mismatch causes the lower output power from the string & the system efficiency and performance becomes lower.
