Topic : Review of Solar Operated Automatic Irrigation System: Comparative Study Analysis

Authors:Sujay Dasgupta || Mit Patel

Abstract:Agriculture plays a vital role in India’s economy. Over 58 % of the rural households depend on agriculture as their principal means of livelihood and irrigation technologies are going to be point of focus in future developments.Irrigation is the procedure through which farming efficiency can be increased when deficiency of rain is there. This calls for focused attention to promote improved water management practices in irrigation projects suffering from operational deficiencies and integrated water resources development and management approach. Typical irrigation systems consume great amount of conventional energy through the use of electric motors and pumps powered by diesel. The variation of spatial and temporal distribution of available water for irrigation makes significant demand on water conservation techniques, this can be done by automation in irrigation by using solar energy which is free and able to help in reducing waste of water and time, both for farmers. The main objective of this review paper is to present a comprehensive literature review starting from conventional irrigation system technology to the latest trends of solar power based automatic irrigation system available commercially and available in research stage. Also comparisons between solar based automatic irrigation system with existing technologies, based on various parameters like energy efficiency, feasibility, economic viability is carried out in depth & conclusions are presented in the forms of remarks..
