Abstract
A hybrid powered pumping system capable of supplying 40 m3 of water per day at a head of around 25 m has been designed. Design criteria are based on requirement for drinking water supplies to small village in the Sudan. The system consists of three technologies: wind pump, solar pump and diesel pump. Simulations of the volume of water pumped during standard solar day of 4kWh/m2 and average wind speed of 3.5 m/s, have shown that the combination delivers required 40 m3 per day. The unit costs were compared and showed that hybrid pumping wind/solar system is economically optimal compared to the diesel pump only.
