Abstract

Solar PV generators coupled to water pumps represent an attractive option for reducing the economic cost and the environmental impact associated to irrigation applications. Prior studies have already evaluated the technical and economic viability of PV water pumping, but they all refer to systems with relatively small PV nominal power (up to 30 kW). The European project MASLOWATEN has recently reported technical and economic validations for 5 large demonstrators (with PV powers in the range of 40-360 kWp) in the South of Europe, but these results are highly site-dependent and it would be interesting to extend them to other regions of the planet.
