Solar DC / AC Pumping System
Solar water pumps are stand-alone systems. A solar pump uses power derived from sunlight that is converted into electrical power (DC) by Solar Photo Voltaic (SPV) modules, DC power which is fed to the pump inverter is converted to AC power for AC Solar Water Pumps.
This AC power will drive the centrifugal mono-block / submersible pumps set for lifting water from bore wells, open wells or reservoirs which give higher power output in the afternoons and lower power output in the mornings and evenings.
As a result, a solar pump works on varying power input and gives varying water output at a given pump head. The system is fitted with auto start and stop with no user intervention.
Working of a solar water pumping systemThe system operates on power generated using solar PV (photovoltaic) system. The photovoltaic array converts the solar energy into electricity, which is used for running the motor pump set. The pumping system draws water from the open well, bore well, stream, pond, canal etc. The system requires a shadow-free area for installation of the Solar panel.
1 HP to 10 HP Solar Water Pumps
These pumps mostly uses by farmers for irrigation of farming land and horticulture farms. Solar pump can be use for fountain, swimming pool pump, water circulation pump, mono-block home pump and other similar applications.Major components of Solar Pump
⦁ Solar Modules: They are the main component of a Solar Pumping System (and really any type of Solar Energy System), as this is where the sunlight is absorbed, and the energy is converted into DC electrical power.
⦁ Solar Modules Mounts/Racks and Solar Trackers: Solar modules need all the stability they can get, especially if it’s particularly windy in your local region. By having module mounts or racks, you won’t have to worry about your modules becoming damaged. Solar trackers are also important, as they can help move or tilt a module to get the most of the morning and afternoon sunlight.
⦁ Charge Controller: Controller controls the system.
⦁ Motor pump to lift the water.
Types of Solar Pumps ⦁ Solar Submersible Pumps: Where the depth of water level is more than 15 meter, submersible pump is recommended. This pump keeps inside the water and lift it out. Solar submersible pump is the most selling pump in India as the depth of water level is very low in maximum areas.

Advantages of a solar water pumping system ⦁ No fuel cost - as it uses available free sun light.
⦁ No electricity required.
⦁ Long operating life.
⦁ Highly reliable and durable.
⦁ Easy to operate and maintain.
⦁ No fuel cost - as it uses available free sun light.
