Solar pumps (water pumps energized by solar photovoltaic power) are being installed in large numbers for irrigation and drinking water pumping applications in the country under various schemes. Automatic test facilities are necessary to ensure quality products are deployed in time. This paper describes a novel method developed for auto constant total head maintaining during solar surface pump testing.
