The unstoppable trajectory of photovoltaic water pumps


From pv magazine International

A group of scientists from Russia’s Federal Scientific Agroengineering Center VIM (FSAC VIM) has provided a retrospective analysis of the most important research conducted on photovoltaic water pumping systems (PVWPS) over the past 55 years and has analyzed the most relevant issues and opportunities in their development, operation, and optimization.

“The [use of] PVWPS is an attractive alternative for irrigation and drinking-water supply in urban and rural regions of the countries [with] huge … solar energy [potential], where a considerable part of rural population lives in remote areas, such as India, China, other countries of Asia and Africa, in sunny, under-populated and mountainous areas of Russia, and other countries,” the researchers stated. “Unlike conventional water pumps, correctly-designed and sized PVWPS are capable [of providing] essential long-term savings.”
