Theoretical Design and Simulation Analysis of PV Based Pumping System for Domestic Applications in Bhopal, M.P, India

Naveen Kumar Lodha | K. Sudhakar [2]

Abstract: Electricity is an essential part of our way of daily life. In the present scenario, most of the electricity is provided from the conventional thermal or hydro power stations. Irregular power supply and frequent grid failure are regular phenomenon in most Indian cities especially during peak summer and winter seasons. The use of photovoltaic array for water pumping system is one of the most promising techniques in solar energy applications. Deployment of PV based solar pumping system for domestic applications is an viable alternative to replace conventional grid electricity. In this paper, theoretical design, performance and simulation analysis of PV based water pumping system with the use of the computer software PVsyst is carried out. According to the analysis, the solar water pumping system has a system efficiency of 21.9 % which is in fair agreement with the previous literature. Therefore SWPS is strongly recommended for both urban as well as rural water supply system.
