Q: How do I determine the amount of panels needed for my solar pump?
A: The easiest way to determine this is to add 30% on top of the pump wattage for minimum requirements and recommended would be 50%. I.e. a 500w pump requires minimum 650w and recommended 750w to operate.
When configuring and connecting solar panels, you also need to check the maximum working voltage and optimal working voltage range of the pump. The open circuit voltage of the solar panel should not exceed the maximum voltage range of the water pump. The working voltage of the solar panel is best within the optimum working voltage range of the water pump.
