Solar Power Made Simple Photovoltaic solar panels produce direct current (dc power) when the sun hits the face of the panels. DC power can be used to operate pumps and motors, or to charge deep cycle batteries. Stored power in batteries can be converted to AC power via an inverter.
Solar Water Pumps Sunmotor has developed a line of pumps that operate directly by solar power. The pumps start automatically when the sun hits the panels.
Agricultural Applications A small solar array connected to a Sunmotor pump delivers water for a herd of cows in a remote pasture.
Environmental Applications Sunmotor pumps are used for environmental remediation like this brine clean-up project for Devon Energy.
Solar-Direct Operation of D.C. Motors Solar power can operate larger DC motors, as in this example of powering a jack-pump on a deep well in Arizona. The jack operates for about 6 hours per day in sunny weather.
Solar/Battery Power Systems Where power is required on demand, we store the solar energy in deep cycle batteries. This examples shows a 1 kW system supplying power for continuous operation of several small dewatering pumps at a remediation site in southern Alberta.
Battery Power to AC Voltage Where AC power is required, we use inverters to convert DC battery power to standard AC voltage, either single-phase or three-phase output.
Inputs Required For Successful Design Project location Description of all loads Voltage and amp ratings of all loads Hours per day operation of all loads Any special site conditions (sun obstructions, code requirements, etc).
