Solar pump has very limited usage. Its capacity will be wasted when pump is not in use. Usually pumps becomes idle in rainy season and many times energy is needed for formers for other purpose too. To overcome this limitation, we has designed a device called “SUNVERTER” which enables to use the same installed solar PV bank to domestic usage, run any single phase machine and also for charging batteries. It can be configured to varying capacity with adjustable DC volts & Dc current. (see paper report in Media page)

In Malnad region areca de husking is mainly done thro machines, which need power of 1-2 hp. Earlier this was done using regular electric supply, which was erratic and voltage was low. Now we have given power thro pump VFD controller , by changing motor to 3phase. Low power cut off is provided thro frequency sense to protect the equipment. Now power is reliable and fed thro renewable source! (see article in Media page)
