Standalone Solar PV fed induction motor for Water Pumping Application
In this work, a stand-alone photovoltaic (PV) systems are presented for water pumping. Solar PV water pumping systems are used for irrigation and drinking water. PV based pumping systems without a battery can provide cost-effective use of solar energy. For the purpose of improving the efficiency of the system incremental conductance (INC) algorithm based Maximum Power Point Tracker (MPPT) is connected to this system. The aim of this work is to show how to achieve an effective photovoltaic pumping system without battery storage. Induction motor controlled by means of V/F control and it drives from two-stage solar PV system i.e., Solar PV + DC-DC conversion + Inverter controlled Induction motor with INC MPPT and V/F control algorithm.
