dc.description.abstractWith the world encountering huge pollution problems, use of renewable energy is being encouraged in place of fossils fuels for electricity generation. On such renewable energies is solar power. Solar powered systems are able to generate electricity using photovoltaic (PV) panels, or thermal collectors directly from sunlight. Pool pump electricity consumption has also risen in South Africa. This paper presents the results of the design, and construction of a PV solar system to effect water pumping in rural areas; pool pumping in urban areas. Before the design was completed the load requirement of pump/motor was gathered. PV system software carried out simulations of the design before implementation. A PV solar system prototype was constructed, tested; results verifieden_US
