Water Pumping Calculator
This calculator can be used to estimate the necessary PV power for a water pumping task. Given the daily volume and lift height for the pumping job, as well as information about the pump and motor, the calculator shows the power required to do the job, how much can be pumped in case the pump is not powerful enough, and the degree to which the pump’s power is utilized. The results compare a dual-axis solar tracking system to a stationary system. The calculation uses the solar energy curve through the day and a hypothetical efficiency curve for the pump.
|PV Power Needed:||*||*|
|The average percent of full power at which the pump is working during daylight hours. Since the pump has to rev up and down, this cannot reach 100%.||Pump Utilization:||*||*|
This calculator is designed to provide an estimate and may not reflect actual results. It uses a hypothetical model to generate results, and actual results vary depending on equipment and region.
