A photovoltaic irrigation pump system was designed. The use of photovoltaic system reduces the load of increasing electric demand on government as it is alternative for conventional energy in agriculture sector. The Solar Photovoltaic (SPV) array converts solar energy directly into electricity as direct current (DC). The 16 to 20 solar plates in solar panel were used to cover approximately 100 m2 area along with 5 hp (4800 W) submersible to lift the water from tube-well for 80 ft to 200 ft (24 m to 60 m) in Etawah region. The total power requirement is 7200 kWh annually for 1500 working hours.

Keywords: Photovoltaic panel, Irrigation pumps, Tube-well.
