Solar Pump – Water Pumping System

Solar Water Pump

Solar pump directly connects with solar panel through a mppt solar pump controller. Whenever sunlight drops on solar panel, solar submersible pump starts lifting the water from ground.

The solar water pump also know as solar pumping system, solar submersible pump or solar pump, a water lifting system powered with electricity generated by solar panel

There is no electricity required to run this solar pump. Even using solar power pump is more economical where grid electricity is not available.
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 panel which generate power.
  • Controller which controls the system.
  • Motor pump to lift the water.

Working of Solar Water Pumping System

Solar Water Pumping system is a water lifting system powered by electricity generated by Solar panels. These systems typical uses for Fountain pumps, Pool pumps, Transfer pumps, Circulation pumps in ponds, Providing water for livestock, Irrigation pumps, Home pumps, horticulture farms and other similar applications. Using solar water pump is more economical where grid electricity is not available. There are two types of Solar Water Pumps, one is Submersible Solar Pump and another is Surface Solar Pump. Both pumps are available in DC and AC.

Solar Water Pump Features

  • Highly reliable solar PV water pump lifts the water from open or bore wells.
  • Works for 6 to 8 hours daily independently.
  • Solar PV array powers the pump directly which requires no battery.
  • It can lift water from 3 to 150 meters.
  • Store water in a tank or use directly for irrigation.
  • Motor Pump Type: Submersible with electronic controller.

Types of solar pump

There are many types of solar pump, but only two types are most successful. One is submersible solar pump and another is surface pump. Both pump come in DC and AC technology.

Solar Submersible Pump

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.

Solar Surface Pump

If the depth of water is less than 15 meter and you want to lift to ground or above the ground level, Solar surface is recommended.

Other Technologies’ Solar Pump

We have three technologies to power your solar surface water pump (AC/DC) and solar submersible water pump (AC/DC). The detailed description of technologies is mentioned below:
  1. Solar pump VFD Drive
  2. Hybrid Solar PV pump (Solar power + Grid electricity + Battery)
  3. On grid solar PV pump (With Net Metering)

Solar pump VFD drive

VFD drive is a solar solution for farmers. Solar pump VFD drive converts your existing water pump into solar pump. This technology is becoming famous day by day. Because there are shortage of electricity in rural area and through VFD drive farmers can operate there pumps even when there is no grid.

Hybrid solar water pump

In hybrid solar pump, there are three power options to run solar pump. First is solar power, second is electricity grid and the third is solar battery. In day time your water pump is powered by solar electricity, in nights it is powered by grid and when both (solar power and grid) is not available then it will powered by battery.

On grid solar water pump

In on grid solar system, your water pump will be powered by solar panel. In case when the solar panel is generating more power than water pump’s consumption, then the excess power will automatically exported to grid via net-metering and government will also adjust it in your next bill.

About 10 HP solar pumps

10 HP solar water pump are like conventional water pumps except that they are run on solar energy. In solar pumps, the sunlight falling on the solar panels, solar panels converted sunlight into electricity that run the solar pump. The solar pumping system draws water from open wells, bore wells, streams, ponds, canals, etc. The system requires a shed-free zone for the installation of a solar panel.

Submersible 10HP solar pump

Submersible pumps are mainly used for pumps from bore, but can also be used for pumps from rivers or dams. The bore pumps fit into a drilled hole inside the casing. Some of the older bore drilled for the windmill had 4 cast iron casing and only 3 pumps would fit the submersible 10 HP solar water pump. Most modern bores are fitted with a 150 mm or larger PVC casing.
