PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The main intention of this project is to develop a solar power irrigation system for agriculture to operate the irrigation pumps automatically by moisture level sensing using a solar energy. This system derives power from solar energy through photo-voltaic cells. Hence, dependency on erratic commercial power is not required.

The proposed system uses a microcontroller of the 8051 family and a battery for power supply. In this system, the sensor part is built using an op-amp acting as a comparator connected to the microcontroller for sensing the moisture condition of the soil. A motor is controlled by the relay which is interfaced to the microcontroller through a transistor driver. In this project, a solar panel is connected to the circuit through a charge controller for monitoring the sunlight level. The charge controller is used to protect the battery by providing all protections besides charging.

In irrigation process,  the solid monitoring is the most critical parameter, so we have to monitor the soil condition by the sensors, whether the soil is dry or wet. If it is dry, then the microcontroller sends the commands as per the program to switch the motor using a relay with the solar power, and if it is dry, then it switches off  the motor automatically. The on/off condition of the pump is displayed on an LCD display.

This project in future can be enhanced by interfacing it with a GSM modem to gain control over the switching operation of the motor.

Q & A
Q:  Which microcontroller is used in this project?
A:  A 40 pin microcontroller from 8051 family is used in this project.
Q:  What is solar automatic irrigation system?
A:  It is a solar powered system which automatically switches on/off the pump by sensing the soil moisture condition.
Q:  How is the soil moisture sensing taking place?
A:  Soil moisture sensing takes place by using two copper wires provided with the kit. These are tied to 2 nails and then inserted beneath the soil.s.
