Automatic Irregation System For Smart City Using PLC AND SCADA

Authors(2) :-Gaddipathi Bharathi, Chippada Gnana Prasunamba

Sustainability of clean water resource has been a big issue being discuss lately. From the reason of lack of resources to the attitude of end user that frequently waste clean water, the problem seems not having any improvement on finding ways to at least contain it from increasing. The problem is related to poor water allocation and monitoring, inefficient use, wastage and lack of adequate integrated water management. There are some Reason that this cannot be controllable such as raw resources and the attitude of end user. However, there is an area that we can at least control it to the lowest level possible by applying better technology and management. The area that can be improved is the monitoring and management of water storage and distribution. Usually we see water pipe leaks, which results in a fountain of burst water. As a result, there will be a water shortage problem because of the pressure lost, which prevents the water from being supplied to the storage tank. By applying the automation system such as SCADA with the integration of Fuzzy control to control water storage, the management of water distribution and monitoring can be improved thus resulting in reducing the level of water wastage and maintaining the supply of clean water.
