Application of Solar Powered Automatic Water Pumping in Turkey

Mahir Dursun and Semih Ozden
Abstract—In this study, an automatic drip irrigation of dwarf cherry trees system with solar powered Brushless DC Motors (BLDC) has been designed and implemented in Zile District of Tokat Province of Turkey. One of motor was used for driving deep well pump which has been utilized for the purpose of water storing to a pool. The other one was used for driving centrifugal pump which has been utilized for the purpose of transferring of water waited in pool to drip irrigation. Optimum solar panels were selected according to calculated maximum power consumption of motors. The need of energy of BLDC Motors has been provided from solar panels and batteries. Sun tracking system was used for increasing efficiency of system. A DC-DC buck converter has been developed to feed motor and charge the batteries safely. Automation of system was provided with RF modules, soil moisture sensors and solenoid valves.

Index Terms—Brushless DC motor, drip irrigation, RF module, soil moisture sensor, solar energy
