<p>Solar photovoltaic systems convert energy of light directly into electrical<br />energy. This work presents, a process to compute the required size of the<br />stand-alone solar photovoltaic generator based water pumping system<br />for an existing area. In addition solar photovoltaic generator is<br />connecting voltage source inverter fed vector controlled induction<br />motor-pump system. Perturb and observe are used for harvesting<br />maximum power of PV generator in between buck-boost

In this paper system result is validated by fuzzy<br />logic system and compare with variable frequency drives based PI<br />controllers, driving motor-pump system. The operational performance<br />at 60 m head, VFD based controllers in terms overshoot and setting time<br />and also analysis performance of motor-pump set under different<br />weather conditions. By assessment of system we find that speed and<br />torque variation, overshoot and settling time is more with PI controller,<br />Fuzzy logic controller (FLC) performance have dominance to VFD<br />based PI controller.</p>
