Water resources are necessary for agricultural uses. During years of drought, water for grand water is used for irrigation, which is recognized as an environmentally and sustainable solution. Many works were proposed to study water pumping using photovoltaic panels, but almost none has presented a configuration using concentrated photovoltaic panels. This paper proposes a new methodology to pump water for agricultural uses based on concentrated photovoltaic technology. The objective of this work is examining a CPV system configuration that is able to supply a solar pump system to answer the needs of three isolated farms located in middle Atlas in Morocco. A detailed methodology for the design of a CPV water pumping system based on real water needs is proposed.
