Effective Irrigation Using SOLAR Based Water Pump with Automatic Switching

Authors(5) :-Khamal Dharmesh, Chauhan Kuldeepsinh, Patel Parth, Durvesh Ismail, Thavrani Bhagchand

The increasing demand for energy, the continuous reduction in existing sources of fossil fuels and the growing concern regarding environment pollution, have pushed mankind to explore new non-conventional, renewable energy resources such as solar energy. In India most of our agriculture water demand is fulfilled from rainwater. Therefore, efficient water management plays an important role in irrigated agricultural cropping systems. Energy of pumps used for the agricultural irrigation is generally provided from electrical energy or fossil fuels. In this project an automatic system is designed which controls the time of operation of water pump for irrigation in agriculture systems. This system consists of solar powered water pump along with an automatic water flow control using a microcontroller sensor. It is the proposed solution for the present energy crisis for the Indian farmers. This system conserves electricity by reducing the usage of grid power and conserves water by reducing water losses.
