Reduced time-to-market and increased competitiveness with our PV pump testing

Testing solar water pumps increases both the trust of end consumers in your products and the trust of investors – like development banks, governmental agencies and private investors. This ensures you a clear competitive advantage and opens up new markets around the globe. Particularly in India, where PV water pumps are in high demand, testing according to local standards is required by law.

With our testing services you can reduce the risk of failure of your solar water pumps and set yourself apart from untested products.

State-of-the-art solar pump testing

Tests are carried out in our independent, fully automated laboratory using a solar array simulator. Testing involves:

  • Performing protective tests on all equipment prior to profile run
  • Entering PV module details into the solar array simulator
  • Simulating conditions according to summer and winter irradiance profiles
  • Controlling head/pressure in the waterline via an automatic gate valve
  • Measuring water delivery with an electromagnetic flow meter

Test run times vary between 13 to 15 hours, and results are evaluated by the cumulative measurements captured in the flow meter and the total flow achieved throughout the day.

Depending on individual product categories our lead times range from only 3 working days up to 8 weeks.
