A solar photovoltaic (SPV) water pumping system consists of a PV array, a DC/AC surface
mounted/ submersible/ floating motor pump set, electronics, if any, interconnect cables and
an “On-Off” switch. PV Array is mounted on a suitable structure with a provision of tracking.
Solar powered water pumps can deliver drinking water as well as water for livestock or irrigation
purposes. It may be especially useful in small scale or community based irrigation, as large scale
irrigation requires large volumes of water that in turn require a large solar PV array.
