This report gives an overviewabout the solarpump motor that will be design. The main
objective of this project is to design a solarpump motor system for the irrigationin rural
Usually the water pumping systems for irrigation in rural areas use the animal or human
powersource to pump the water. Eventhough there is electric energy from the suppliers
to operate the pumping system, it will coast highly. This is due to the implementation of
the transmission line needed. Chapter 1 briefly explained the background of study,
problem statement, objective and scope of study.
In the Chapter 2, the report will discuss on the literature review and the theory behind
this project. To design a solar power pump motor the understanding on each system
components on how it work and basic idea of it are needed. The scopes of study for this
project will include the concept of solar energy, photovoltaic (PV) panel, photovoltaic
(PV) cell storage, operation of direct current(DC) and alternating current(AC), rectifier
and converter and control unit.
There are several methodology used in this project. The major is literature research on
the internet about the present solar pump method. Beside that, the additional reading
related to the solar pump motor design is also made. The Auto CAD also will be used in
the design drawing of the system. All of this will be explained more on the Chapter 3.
Several findings have been discovered during the research. It was found that actually
the photovoltaic (PV) cell is consisting of N-type and P-type material as like a
semiconductor device. The AC motor can be used even though the supply from
photovoltaic (PV) cell is direct current (DC). This can be done by using an inverter.
The concept of solar battery storage also has been studied during the research. There
will be more explanation of findings in the Chapter 4.
