Abstract: The solar PhotoVoltaic (PV) power is a dc power and if compatible loads are available, we can build a simple and economic solar system at remote locations. The most important load is the electric motor which is capable of driving rotating loads such as pumps, washers and refrigerators and supplied directly from the solar energy. The single phase induction motor is commonly used in such domestic applications, so, we selected it as a base for our new solar drive, however, the motor will be redesigned for identical main and auxiliary stator windings and fed from the solar power via. a special two-phase inverter. In this study, we will design a novel simple programmed wave inverter which collects the advantages of the two commercially available inverters: low harmonics and low cost in addition to small size, so, it can be integrated with the motor as a reliable solar drive.
