This paper describes the dynamic modeling of system used for extraction of groundwater for irrigation using alternative source of energy. The system is designed based on site data of an existing project in Lalmonirhat, Bangladesh. The system comprises of a 38.4 kWp solar photovoltaic array, inverter, ac motor and pump set which can discharge a maximum of 1930m3 of water per day. MATLAB Simulation is done with two kind of energy storage system i.e. in form of electric energy using battery or in form of stored water using a large water tank. A large battery bank and a transformer are needed for the first approach, which turns out as a costly solution. On the other hand, the system needs a boost converter and a large water tank to store around 2000m3 of water, which is also a costly solution. Effectiveness of these both arrangements are compared from the economic point of view. This paper also tries to find out an optimum solution combining both approaches.
