This project proposes an efficient drive system for solar power fed irrigation pumps. An interleaved zeta converter is employed for regulating the voltage from solar panels. The proposed system eliminates the phase current sensor and thus is cost effective BLDC motor is fed from VSI. The proposed system is simulated on MATLAB platform with closed loop control obtaining satisfactory results. The hardware implementation is done for open loop control using FPGA controller of Xilinx Spartan 3AN and the results are demonstrated.
