Abstract

In a rural area, where electricity supply is limited, water accessibility for the society generally becomes a major concern. Here, we proposed the alternative solution which is an integrated solar-powered water pump system using the DC concept. We investigated the optimum condition and the power conversion before and after the installation of photovoltaic (PV) panels. The correlation between the total water lift and flow rate has been determined as one the parameter designing the PV panel integration by assuming the total water lift as independent variables (H0, H1,H2, and H3 with 1-meter increment) and the electrical power as a dependent variable (the power supply only comes from battery). Using these schemes, we calculated the efficiency of these four different conditions were 2.73%, 12.21%, 18.44%, and 15.34%, respectively. Meanwhile, after PV panel integration in which the total head H1=1.33 meter as dependent variables and PV modules as independent variables, the efficiency of the submersible Water DC pump powered by a PV module of 4x30 Wp and 6x30 Wp reached 11.92% and 11.78% subsequently.
