Solar-powered water pumps can be used at agriculture, homes, factories, offices and other commercial locations. Such pumps are a more cost-effective alternative to pumps that run on grid power or fuel such as diesel, kerosene or bio-fuels. In addition to the ecological benefits, such pumps are very cost-effective in installing, operating and maintaining. Further, these systems do not require batteries which make it a better alternative to run regular AC pumps. The solution makes use of Solar PV modules to generate DC power which is used to run a Solar drive. The Solar drive is a variable frequency converter that produces AC Voltages. When sunlight is low, the AC voltage generated is also low. The solar drive then ensures that the frequency also reduces, which helps protecting the motor of the pump.
