Solar Water Pumps For South African Conditions
Intro to Solar Pumps – General Information
The energy created by the sun, commonly referred to as solar power, can be utilised in several of ways to convert the sun’s rays into electricity. With a solar water pump, solar energy is converted into electricity and fed to a pump which circulates water. Solar pumps can be used in borehole, swimming pools, fountains and larger agricultural projects for irrigation and pivot applications.
Solar pumps are an environmentally friendly and energy/cost efficient way to pump water for a wide range of domestic and commercial purposes as well as for agricultural and residential irrigation and/or cattle or livestock watering.
Another very big advantage is that a solar pump is virtually silent.
Solar pumps are self-contained pumping systems which provide a water supply solution for residences or business which normally are located in areas where there is no access to a conventional electrical energy such as a grid or a generator, such as small villages or farms which have widely distributed pastures. It is also ideally suited for the eco-friendly homes or homes in drought stricken areas which use boreholes for their water supply. The solar pump is one of the greatest solutions to the electricity problems in South Africa as it utilises the abundance of free energy which we receive each day from the sun.
Solar pumps are easy to install and require virtually no maintenance, and they can have a lifespan of roughly 20 years. This means that after the initial set up costs their serving costs are minimum.
The variable flow rate of the solar pump is largely determined by the strength and direction of the sun. You need to ensure that the specific solar water pump purchased meets the needs of your system and application.
Solar pumps operate by using the following main components. The solar array collects the sun’s UV rays and converts it into usable electricity. The control panel or MPPT controller regulates the DC voltage for specialised DC pumps. The systems can also be fitted with an auxiliary AC input controller or panel for generator or grid connection in an emergency or during prolonged very cloudy days.
