Chapter 7 Photovoltaic Water Pumping System in Niger

  title={Chapter 7 Photovoltaic Water Pumping System in Niger},
  author={Madougou Saïdou and Kaka Mohamadou and S. Gregoire},
The use of photovoltaic energy to pump water is particularly well suited in the Sahel. This source of energy is free and abundant, but also provides autonomy for many isolated vil‐ lages of rural areas. The water pumped is stored in the thanks until its use (in the night or during the cloudy days). Locally, there are many companies that manufacture these tanks. These towers do not require special maintenance and are easy to be repair. This chapter presents a study of photovoltaic water pumping… Expand
