Solar array wire sizing for submersible pump
I have a Grundfos SQ Flex 25-7 submersible pump that is rated 30-300 VDC. Also I have eight 100 watt panels (5.56 amps & 18 volts) I intend to wire in series to power the pump at a depth of 150'. My preferred location for the solar array is approximately 120 feet from the water well. I am confused as to how to determine the appropriate wiring size with an voltage loss of 3% or less. May calculations indicate with a distance of approximately 270' the wire size will be #4 AWG. Is this correct?
