Shields work by creating a barrier between you and an outside world, fed by energy of your accumulator. This unfortunately means that you won't be able to use your own weapons while it's active.

The main parameter of the shield is it's absorption ration, i.e. how much accumulator it uses to tank one point of damage. Note that shield does not have any resistances.

Interaction with surface size

Shield has a certain fixes size that it can cover without sacrificing absorption. However, the game client also calculates this in reverse as well, adding the efficiency if you use bigger shield on small robot. This is incorrect and has been changed a long time ago.

Correct way to calculate would be to take base value of the shileld and apply robot, extension, Shield Hardener and NEXUS multipliers on top.

What it boils down to is, using shield bigger than T3 small on light bots and T4 small on assaults is useless.

Mediums shields also have a peculiarity. T4 shields are the only ones usable on heavies, and T1-T3 are optimal for mechs.

In-game description: When equipped onto a robot this module emits a protective power field to stop incoming damage by using up the accumulator's energy. This accumulator unit/damage conversion rate is displayed as the AP/HP measure. There is however a major drawback to this kind of defense: when the shield is turned on, you cannot use any of your own weapons.


Small

Usually used on robots sized light to assault. Note that shield radius should ideally match your bot as close as possible, there is no benefit of having a radius bigger than the robot.
