How can I configure a 26kW Solar Farm for Pumping Water, so that if/when the Grid goes down we will still be able to use power from the solar panels to operate the Pumps ?
We have 3phase power running to the pumps, and have a 50KW pump motor, so I think we have a 50KW power lines. When we pump we use from 150~200kwh power per day.
I have been told that in a blackout situation, normal grid connected inverters will disconnect from the grid for safety reasons for linesmen working on the lines.
So if a blackout happens during the day, what equipment do I need to install so the Solar power can be used during the blackout ?
We want to remain grid connected to get an income from the Solar when not being used ?
