This paper is about the design of a solar water pumping system for a two hectare wheat farm in Amritsar, Punjab India. After collecting the site data and farm water requirements a system was designed and simulated in HOMER software. The designed system consists of a 4.14kW photovoltaic panel network, 20 12V Trojan SAGM batteries and a 1.58kW power converter. Steady state system simulation results show that design system can meet the farm water requirements. The dynamic simulation of the designed system was performed in MATLAB and the overall characteristics of the system was improved by incorporating a control system based on Perturb and Observe maximum power point tracking algorithm. Designed system details and simulation results are included in the paper.
