Cost Analysis of Solar Water Pumping System for Small Town Water Supply




reliability, availability, profitability, sensitivity, solar, repairman


This study investigates the economics of a solar water pumping system for usage in small towns. The system consists of two solar panels, an inverter, a water pumping mechanism, and two parallel tanks. Using the transition diagram, a system of first order linear ordinary differential equations is generated and used to generate a statement of system availability and profit. To validate the expressions of system availability and profit, numerical experiments in the MATLAB software in the form of tables and graphs are utilized. According to the findings, the system's profitability increases as the value of repair rates across all subsystems increases, while it decreases when the value of failure rates across all subsystems increases.
