The photovoltaic generation mainly comprises three fields.
- Isolated or battery systems: installation is recommended in remote areas of electricity distribution networks and their development is affected by the high cost and short battery life.
- Grid-tied Systems: Does not require the use of batteries and the intention is to promote self-generation of electricity to meet consumption.
- Solar pumping systems:
- Pumping systems in Direct Current (DC): The pumping capacity for the DC pumps available in the market is very limited. ( no more than 5HP)
- Three Phase Solar inverter: These kind of inverters were designed to feed AC pumps from a very low until a high pumping capacity ( 450 watts – 55 HP)
