Abstract

The advantage of using a solar powered pumping system in a rural area where electricity supply is not available and transportation of diesel fuel is difficult, is well known. However, the sizing of the system to suit the local water needs based upon the local solar radiation is not an easy task. We describe here a 1. 2kwp photovoltaic pump testing system, installed at our campus ground used to test and simulate pumping condition at a remote location in the region, before actual design and sizing are made. The system described consist of 28 PV panels, giving a total of 1. 2kwp power, a DC/AC inverter and a 750W submersible AC pump. The system performance was found to give a total system efficiency of 3. 01% at average radiation of 900W/m. The economic of the system was found to be favourable giving a resulting water cost of US0. 035 per m**3/m.
