Solar-Grid Connected Single Phase Water Pumping System for Household Application

Kumar, Nitish ; Agarwal, Anshul


The proposed work focuses on the use of a hybrid water pumping system powered through the grid as well as photovoltaic cells, which is capable of operating on single-source availability of either solar or grid. This work reduces multiple stage power conversion by using a novel Modified Universal Converter to replace the diode rectifier, inverter for the hybrid water pumping system. The efficacy of the system has been tested, when operates, solar, grid, and both (solar and grid). The proposed water pumping system is tested on all three modes and also discusses voltage, current, speed, electromagnetic torque when the motor operates on grid, solar and both (grid and solar).
