A solar powered pump is a pump running on electricity generated by photovoltaic panels or the radiated thermal energy available from collected sunlight as opposed to grid electricity or diesel run water pumps.
A solar water pump system is a fairly simple structure and basically consists of submersible or surface pump. Most of solar water pumps doesn’t use batteries.
Submersible water pump is inside the ground. That is, the whole assembly is submerged in the fluid to be pumped. It can be used to lift water from great depths of up to 700feet deep.
Solar pumping system is the most attractive way to supply water in the sunny areas in the world today, especially in the remote areas where power shortage or electricity are not available uses the power generated by the solar module array to drive the pump.
Surface water pump are designed to pump water from surface sources like springs, ponds, tanks, or shallow wells. … Unlike our submersible pumps, they should not be submerged. It can be used to pump surface water of 10-20 feet deep.
DIFFERENT WAYS OF USING WATER PUMP:
Solar water pump: uses the power generated by the solar modules array to drive the pump. Its the most attractive way to supply water in the sunny areas in the world today, especially in the remote areas where power shortage or electricity are not available. Existing pump will be remove and replaced with solar water pump. [solar water pumps in water immediately its sunrise]
By Water pump solar inverter: uses solar energy as their power source doing the day. solar inverter convert direct current [DC] obtained from photovoltaic [PV] panel to alternating current [AC] for further uses. This can power your existing pump.
inverter [Full system]: inverter can carry your existing home appliances alongside your water pump system.
