In a few questions ( Does the ISS need more heating or more cooling?, Why did Salyut 7 freeze over, while ISS requires massive cooling system? ) it is implied that the station inside heat budget is pretty much result of power draw of various systems - systems running = station needs cooling; systems inactive = station freezing, needs heating.
Still, taken as a whole, station and its solar cells, the system receives pretty much the same amount of solar irradiation regardless of whether the systems inside are running or not. And the same heat that would otherwise result in overheating the station (if not for the cooling system) should land somewhere if the station inside is not heated. That somewhere being most likely the solar panels. Likely reducing their electrical efficiency and as result leading to collecting even more heat.
Is that so? How does drawing power from the solar panels influence their temperature? Does it necessitate special procedures for reactivating panels that have been "off" for too long (turn "edge towards the Sun" to dissipate heat, for the efficiency to rise enough that facing the Sun they will not keep heating up, enough irradiation drawn away as electricity, instead of accumulating as heat with too low electrical efficiency to keep the temperature stable)?
Or am I wrong, and the panels even entirely switched off and facing the Sun "perfectly" still radiate more heat than they acquire, never exceeding temperatures where their efficiency drops too much?
