POWER ELECTRONICS SOLAR PUMPING, COMMITTED TO SAVING.
Power Electronics have installed a new hybrid solar pumping in Avila, Spain; a system that can run from a solar installation as well as from the network. The installation consists of a SD700SP working as the master, and a SD500 working as the slave. Both feed 18kW pumps respnsible for the irrigation of barley fields from a nearby resevoir.
An irradiation sensor provides the information to the SD700SP control drive when there is enough light to start the pump at the minimum frequency. If radiation increases, the master SD700SP gives the signal to the SD500 slave drive. SD700SP has the ability to operate simultaneously (hybrid system) from the solar array and the grid, so that the required irrigation can flow in low radiation.
The irrigation industry is increasingly turning to the solar pump as a solution for increasing performance and energy saving facilities. This solution, along with Power Electronics Power on Support philosophy makes it one of the most popular choices for the irrigation community.
