A Case Study on Field Testing of Windpumps in India

This paper describes a simple approach to the testing of appropriate technology design windpumps and some early experience in operation of a relatively simple field test. This field test includes comparative assessment under identical conditions, an impartial record of maintenance requirements, and generates performance data to predict the quantity of water likely to be lifted on gross monthly basis at different places.
