About this book

Over the past 15 years, the solar pump has evolved to become a technology which can make a significant contribution to water supply in rural areas of developing countries. There are around 5000 solar pumps being used around the world, and the 1990s should see a major increase in numbers. "Solar Pumping" should be valuable for anyone interested in the use of solar pumps. It is a practical handbook which aims to provide a simple introduction to the equipment, maintenance and operation of solar pumping systems. This text is particularly suitable for potential users and purchasers of solar pumping equipment, as it helps to identify the situations in which solar pumping should be considered appropriate. It also reviews developments in technology, costs and economics for those who already have some experience of working with solar pumps. Areas covered in this text include when to use solar pumps; solar pumping technology; available equipment; general field equipment; site and system evaluation for village water supply; site and system evaluation for irrigation pumping; practical cost appraisal; implementation and operation.
