Abstract: This paper describes how the underground water can be collected using a submersible pump that is fed by Solar Photovoltaic (SPV) Systems using solar energy in remote areas where the water level is quite low. The submersible pump uses the induction motor to utilize the underground water. The integrated system includes a solar charge controller connected to an inverter in order to supply a steady voltage to the pump motor. In addition, the controller protects the system against overcharging and over discharging. The integrated system has been implemented to test the usefulness of the system. The study includes cost analysis as well to show the financial benefits that one can achieve through implementation of such integrated systems in real world especially in village areas where there are issues in getting useful water for agriculture and domestic purpose.
