In this model, user can discover the design and performance aspects of Solar PV pumping unit. Furthermore; user can go through the calculation model for centrifugal pump, which the user can calculate the following:
-Actual pump head based on the addressed losses
-Specific speed: to decided the flow pump type (radial, mixed, or axial)
Solar PV model is simulated based on two concepts: (a) Instant solar radiation W/m2, (b) Total daily solar radiation kWh/m2. PV model is run based on the load from the pumping unit. It can calculate the following:
-Sort curcuit cuurent
-Short curcuit voltage
-Max current and voltage
-Cell and module efficiencies
-Module weight and dimensions
-FOB price, $/module and total PV costs
-Number of cells and modules
-Cell, module, total areas
3 Phase induction motor model has been added to the system. User can select
dynamically between PV and the motor application for powering on the pump.
**MatLab-SimuLink should be used to run the model.
