Abstract

The diesel driven water pumping systems have a great impact on irrigation in remote areas around the world. The aim of this project is to carry out an economic comparison between the diesel and photovoltaic (PV) pumping system. This will be of assistance to farmers especially in remote areas of Oman. Specifically, it aims to evaluate both systems over the life cycle period including the fuel cost, operation and maintenance cost and other recurrent costs.
