Abstract: Latest advances in the field of renewable energy sources and the power electronic circuits have seen their applicability in many fields. One such application is water pumping system in the field of agriculture. The use of PV cells fed by SRM(Switched Reluctance Motor) has created research interest as they have high conversion efficiency at low voltage and medium voltage levels respectively. To combine their features together DC/DC converters are incorporated. This paper gives the design, modeling and simulation DC/DC converters with PV cell fed switched reluctance motor for agriculture field. This is specifically applied for the water pumping motor. The simulation is done MATLAB- Simulink Environment. Various DC/DC converter are simulated and their effect with respect to various parameters such as number of switching devices, smooth and reliable operation is studied.
