Solar planning usually goes like this:
Estimate your energy needs -> Calculate panel wattage required to cover this -> Decide on panels voltage and wiring (24 or 12, parallel or series) and on type and size of controller (PWM or MPPT).

Installing 3*50W in series with MPPT, if you will want to add more watts later, you will have to add in 50W increments again.
