Detailed Product Description
A solar PV water pumping system draws power from solar cell / modules to operate a motor pump set. Solar power pumps use specially developed and energy efficient motor pump sets to achieve higher discharge which off sets the high initial cost.
Types of Solar Power pumps:
i. DC surface pump (centrifugal) or floating pump set.
ii. AC surface or submersible pump set.
Centrifugal pumps are suitable for areas where water is available at shallow depths such as open wells / stream / ponds / canals etc. They are driven by a DC motor. The total head is 14 m and maximum suction head is 7m. Better performance in the form of higher water output can be achieved when the suction head is kept at the minimum.Submersible pumps are recommended where water table is available at higher depth (more than 14 m). It is highly efficient and rugged multistage pump. Pumps can be conveniently placed under water so as to lift water from up to 50 m depth.
