5HP Submersible Solar Water Pumping System

Location: Dhupguri
Capacity: 5 HP
Department: WBWRIDD Agri Mechanical
Purpose: Irrigation

Overview – 5 HP Submersible Solar Water Pumping System

The 5 HP Submersible Solar Water Pumping System at Dhupguri, West Bengal is a state-of-the-art solar installation system, installed by SunShell Power, one of the leading solar power companies in India.

The plant harnesses solar panel units to run a 5 Horsepower VFD (Variable Frequency Drive) solar pump set for irrigation purposes. The project comes under the Water Resources Investigation & Development Department Agri Mechanical.


Technical Details

This project by SunShell Power has an advanced Solar remote monitoring system that allows engineers to remotely monitor all solar panel data regarding Solar panel power generation and consumption.

Further, the dual-axis tracker structure of the solar panel allows easy changing of the tilt structure of the solar panels to maximize solar power output. Advanced features for human safety, IP 54 encloser for controller box, and separate AC and DC multi-layer protection make this one of the most reliable Solar water pumping systems ever made.



The Project also promotes switching over to eco-friendly mode in the remote Dhupguri area, where a conventional electric grid is not available. With a very low operation and maintenance cost, one-time investment for installation of solar panels, and zero pollution, this is one of the best solar water pump installations in India in terms of return-on-investment and cost-effectiveness.



A major challenge that came forward during installation was the frequent burning-out of pump controllers and solar power units during a change of power source from solar to grid and vice versa. SunShell Power, as one of the most reputed solar power companies in India, delivered a unique solution to the problem, by implementing a load change over switch, which allowed only one power source at a time- either AC Power from the grid or DC Power from Solar panels. This has proved to be a hugely successful project.

7.5 HP Solar Water Pumping System With Dual Axis Tracker & Sprinkler
SunShell powers integrated the 7.5 HP solar water pumping system in the Chitmahal area in the Coochbihar district. This system aims to lift water from the nearby river and distribute it to the 8 hectares of land through sprinklers. This project was a first of its kind and was closely monitored by the Chief Minister’s office. The whole structure used 24 numbers of 72 Cells 325Wp Poly-Crystalline Solar Panels with a dual-axis tracker, operated manually by a single person. The dual-axis tracker helps track the sun’s changing positions due to the earth’s rotation and revolution movements and, in turn, helps capture the maximum amount of sun’s energy to be used for the system. One axis is azimuth, which allows the solar panel to move left and right. The other axis is elevation and allows the panel to turn up and down.

6.6 KWp On-Grid Domestic Rooftop Solar PV Power Plant: First Domestic project under CESC
Dr. Rajen Kumar Pandey, a renowned doctor and renewable energy enthusiast were the first to introduce a domestic net metering system for his residential solar rooftop power plant under CESC. Net metering is a billing mechanism that credits solar energy system owners for the electricity they add to the grid. If a home is net-metered, the electricity meter will run backward to provide a credit against what electricity is consumed at night or other periods when the home's electricity use exceeds the system's output.
