Abstract

The need for irrigation is absolute for the agricultural system. Water pump is a highly needed tool by society in providing clean water and irrigation. If we only rely on rainwater, the land becomes unproductive in the dry season. The unavailability of electricity in many locations in Indonesia is an obstacle for farmers to install drilled wells or draw water from rivers. In this research, a solar water pump system is designed that allows it to be moved easily. The solar pump uses a 100 Ah battery, a 120 WP solar panel and a 1000 watt inverter. The model has been tested to irrigate strawberry gardens in Pintubosi Village, Toba Regency. The pump has been running for 4 hours (12.00 – 16.00 AM) while irrigating and charging the battery are running simultaneously.

Abstract

Agricultural sectors always need technology to get higher yields. Wireless Sensor Technology with LR-WPAN gives the opportunity to control the plat with minimum cost. In this paper, we developed a system that optimally waters agricultural crops based on a wireless sensor network technology. The scope in this paper consists of two main components: a hybrid power source and a communication system between end nodes with the gateway. The first component was designed and implemented in control box hardware using PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) to generate the power to all components (microcontroller, sensor, and actuator). The second is transmission data from end node to gateway by utilizing Zigbee protocol. The automation uses data from three soil moisture sensors as a trigger to the ON/OFF solenoid valve for watering the field. It may conclude that the system can work properly, the data from the field was sent real-time. Also, the hybrid power was working properly to supply power.
