Solar Water Pump System is an independent power system which produces its own the solar energy required for the operation of the water pump. Solar Water Pump can be used for both Drinking Water & Irrigation Purpose The solar water pump systems are capable of running all types of electric water pumps (AC as well as DC Pump) with applications varying from irrigation to household demands. Irrigation pumps such as submersible, surface or deep well can also be coupled with drip irrigation systems to enhance the returns from Solar Water Pump System.
The operation of solar powered pumps is more economical mainly due to the lower operation and maintenance costs. Solar pumps are useful where grid electricity is unavailable/available for few hours of the day and alternative sources (in particular wind) do not provide sufficient energy.
A Solar Water Pump System has three Main parts:
1. Solar Panels.
2. Pump Controller
3. Water Pump
Solar Water Pump Can work Daily up to 8 Hours Depending on availability of sunlight. The capacity of Water Pump, Solar Panels, Depth of Water and Storage Height are the few main parameters which are considered while designing the system.
