The diesel driven water pumping systems have a great impact on irrigation in remote areas around the world. However the gradual increase of fuel prices worldwide and high maintenance cost discourages the utilization of the technology. Therefore, it is important to think of an alternative energy source for such application. The optimal sizing of this PV water pumping provides theoretical studies of photovoltaics and modelling of electric power requirement for powering pump to irrigate crops as…
