Abstract— In today’s technological world, it is affordable to design a solar based system that can provide the energy needed for day to day life. One such application is solar water pumping which is cost effective and reliable in a country like India, where it receives sunlight throughout the year. This paper is based on a solar water pumping system, which is designed and analyzed according to the requirement at Vellakovil, Tamilnadu, India. The solar irradiance data is collected for the chosen location using PVgis. A dedicated software (PVsyst) was considered for the sizing of photovoltaic systems considering the proposed energy consumption, site location, source of water and daily requirement of water. Sizing of the solar panels was also calculated manually. The system is designed with these data and the efficiencies are compared to obtain the system with better energy output.
