PARC introduces solar powered pumping system for tubewells

ISLAMABAD, December 16: Pakistan Agricultural Research Council (PARC) has got a  remarkable achievement by successfully installing and running of solar operated AC submersible pumping system at Talagang in District Chakwal. This system is much economical than existing DC solar pumping system.  It was jointly stated by Dr. Nadeem Amjad Chairman PARC and Dr. Iftikhar Ahmad, Former Chairman PARC at inauguration ceremony of the “Solar Powered AC Pumping System for Deep Tubewell” at Talagang. They said the DC solar pumping system was not economically feasible where more discharge is required from depth of more than 200 ft. Therefore, it became a prime challenge to design and integrate solar power with available inverters and AC pumps through state of art technologies to address the issues in an affordable cost to farming community.They said that the PARC engineers have identified combination of solar powered AC pumps which is only the best economical workable option for deep water pumping and integration with high efficient irrigation systems. This intervention has provided economical solution to the farmers having deep water source.
