The solar water pumping system is a stand-alone system operating on power generated using solar PV (photovoltaic) system. The power generated by solar cells is used for operating DC surface centrifugal mono-block pump set for lifting water from bore / open well or water reservoir for minor irrigation and drinking water purpose. The system schematic is shown in the figure below. The system requires a shadow-free area for installation of the Solar Panel.
The system is provided with solar PV panel, centrifugal DC mono-block / AC submersible with inverter.
Advantages of solar pump sets:
No conventional grid electricity required.
Long operating life.
Highly reliable and durable- free performance.
Easy to operate and maintain.
Saving of conventional diesel fuel.
