Abstract: In this paper a stand-alone Photovoltaic (PV) systems is presented for water pumping. Solar PV water pumping systems are used for irrigation and drinking water. PV based pumping systems without battery can provide a cost-effective use of solar energy. For the purpose of improving efficiency of the system perturb and observe (P&O) algorithm based Maximum Power Point Tracker (MPPT) is connected to this system. The aim of this paper is to show how to achieve an effective photovoltaic pumping system without battery storage. Results are presented based on different cases of irrigation pumping application and availability of solar irradiance. Simulation results using MATLAB/SIMULINK show that the performance of the controllers both in transient as well as in steady state is quite satisfactory. � 2011 IEEE.
