Help with diverter valve selection

Getting ready to install a small diy solar panel array and trying to figure out best way to divert some of the return line to feed the 3 parallel panels. For this summer, the output of the panels will just be collected and piped directly into the pool.
- Think I need a diverter valve with ability to control flow to the panel array from 0 - 100%. Ones I’ve looked at seem to not have the continuous flow control but are stepped - port is either open or closed.

- Would a Y with a simple ball valve on the panel port work!

Any suggestions appreciated! I only want to cut the return line once!
