Abstract

The need for agricultural and community water sources to be pumped is impacted by the high cost of diesel and the absence of electricity, particularly in rural areas. Thus, one alternative to conventional electricity and diesel- based pumping systems might be the use of solar energy for water pumping. Solar energy could therefore be a viable water pumping alternative to traditional electricity and diesel-based pumping systems. This review gives a glimpse of information on solar water pumping technology, and the research gaps for its wider adoption. The matching of characteristics between solar photovoltaic modules, controller, motor and pump is the great task to obtain optimum overall efficiency or solar pump efficiency
