The data are fully described in the article: S. Meunier, M. Heinrich, L. Queval, J.A. Cherni, L. Vido, A. Darga, Ph. Dessante, B. Multon, P.K. Kitanidis, C. Marchand, "A validated model of a photovoltaic water pumping system for off-grid rural communities", Applied Energy, vol 241, pp. 580-591, 2019, DOI: 10.1016/j.apenergy.2019.03.035. Please cite this article when you use the data. The data were collected on a photovoltaic (PV) water pumping system in the village of Gogma, Burkina Faso. The data collected by the data logger are: - Time: t - Irradiance on the plane of the PV modules: G_pv [W/m2] - Ambient temperature: T_a [°C] - PV modules temperature: T_pv [°C] - Voltage of the PV generator: V_pv [V] - Current from the PV generator: I_pv [A] - Pumped flow rate: Q_p [m3/s] - Collected flow rate: Q_c [m3/s] The data cover the following periods with a time step of 1 minute: - 12 February - 18 February 2018 - 19 February - 21 February 2018 - 16 May - 29 May 2018 - 29 July - 11 August 2018 For any questions about the dataset please contact Simon Meunier:
