Solar photovoltaic pumping system is one of most important of renewable energy applications especially in rural areas. Besides, the control strategy for standalone solar pumping system based on induction motor and without DC/DC converter has been widely studied and discussed in the literature. This topology is of great concern due its economic issues, especially when a standard frequency converter (SFCs) with scalar control is used instead of a dedicated PV inverter. This paper proposes an external control module to generate SFCs frequency reference in order to ensure both maximum power point tracking (MPPT). We present method of modeling and control of photovoltaic pumping system based centrifugal pump controlled by new improved incremental conductance in order to optimize the price and operation of pumping system this MPPT algorithm have many advantages like can be eliminate proportional integral controller It is a low cost solution since it requires no additional power equipment. The induction motor driven pump that is powered by a solar array is controlled by the indirect field oriented control (IFOC). The effectiveness of the proposed approach is illustrated by simulations carried out under Matlab Software. The experimental results are compared with simulation results.
