Project: Optimization of Overall Cost and Efficiency of a Photovoltaic Energy Source Feeding a Synchronous Reluctance Motor Suitable for Pumping Systems

2014-08-01 – 2018-09-30


The proposed study investigates the optimization of the overall cost and efficiency of a photovoltaic (PV) energy source feeding a synchronous reluctance motor. The load is a pumping system that has to work under different conditions and constraints. Simulation models will be used to determine the optimal motor configuration and the optimal number of PV modules.
