solar pump

A pumping system, powered by the energy of the sun.

Key features

The PV pumping system is very simple and consists of the following components:

The diagram on the right visualises how the system operates. A surface pump is given in this example, but most of the pump models we offer are submersible screw pumps.

This system has two configurations. You can turn your existing pump into a solar PV pump by adding a special inverter or you can directly install a solar pump without the need for an inverter.

Option 1

In the first case, we need to know the power capacity of the pump in order to select the right inverter and the correct number of solar PV panels. Ideally, the panels should have 20-30% more power capacity than the pump, so that the system can work even in suboptimal conditions. For example, if your pump is 1 200W, then we recommend a minimum of 1 500W panels, or even 2 000W, for greater security.

After ou connect the pump, all you need is the sun. When there is sun, the pump runs constantly. If the power coming from the panels drops, it reduces the pumping speed until full power from the panels is restored. If the power weakens a lot (when there is dense clouding), the system stops and waits for the sun to return and power to recover.

Option 2

In the second case, the system works by the same principle, but in this case we require more information to select the ideal pump for your needs. We would require the drilling depth, the required head size and the flow rate per hour.

There is also an option to add a battery pack to be used in the dark part of the day or in bad weather when the production of the panels is not sufficient. We would need you to estimate how many hours of reserves you would like to have, expressed in a number of operating hours of the pump.

The solar pump can be used to fill a large buffer tank which you can use directly for irrigation. A great way to store energy in the form of water!
