CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

Background of the Study

The “automatic water level control with an automatic pump control system” project is intended to keep track of the liquid level in the tank. The system is equipped with an automatic pumping mechanism that fills the tank when the liquid reaches the lower threshold and turns off the pump when the liquid reaches the upper threshold. In many ways, the availability of available water resources is currently a major concern. Poor water allocation, inefficient consumption, and a lack of competent and integrated water management are all contributing to this problem. Water is widely used in agriculture, industry, and household use. As a result, for a home or office water management system, efficient use and water monitoring are potential constraints. This water level control monitors and maintains the water level in the overhead tank, ensuring a constant flow of water around the clock without the hassle of turning on or off the pump, saving time, energy, and water, and preventing the pump from overworking. Liquid level control systems are also commonly employed to monitor liquid levels in reservoirs and silos. To ensure that water sustainability is truly achieved with disbursement coupled to sensing and automation, a programmed method is required. This programmatic approach comprises microcontroller based automated water level sensing and regulating or the use of 555 timer IC.

STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

In many ways, the availability of available water resources is currently a major concern. Poor water allocation, inefficient consumption, and a lack of competent and integrated water management are all contributing to this problem. Water is widely used in agriculture, industry, and household use. As a result, for a home or office water management system, efficient use and water monitoring are potential constraints. Furthermore, the most typical way of level control for home appliances is to simply start the feed pump at a low level and let it run until the water level in the water tank rises to a higher level. This water level control regulates, monitors, and maintains the water level in the above tank, ensuring a constant flow of water 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

AIM AND OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY

The goal of the designed device is to create an automatic water level control system with an automatic control system. Sensors are placed at various levels of the tank in this project, and the microcontroller uses these sensors to monitor the level of the liquid at any given time. The following precise objectives were set out to attain the stated goal:

i. Create a water monitoring system that is automated.

ii. To include an interactive display medium between the machine and the end user.

iii. To avoid the pumping mechanism from becoming overworked and breaking down.

iv. Automatic water level control saves energy and prevents water waste because the demand for electricity is so high.

SCOPE OF THE PROJECT

The project was created to automatically control the pump, ensuring that the reservoir has a consistent supply of water. The design was kept simple and concise in order to avoid adding unnecessary complexities and making it uncomfortable in general. The system does not have a sophisticated peripheral device attached, which is impossible for detailed printing information but has been left out for cost reasons. To achieve this goal, a 15 well-built automated water pump was used instead of a 15 well-built automatic water pump. The automatic water level controller detects and controls the water in the tank.

JUSTIFICATION OF THE PROJECT

Because of the human inaccuracy and inconsistency associated with manually controlled water pumping machines, an automatic water level monitor was developed. This is because it takes time for a person manually running a water pump to turn off the pumping mechanism, which can result in water spillage, and the person may not realize the water level has dropped so low until the tank is fully empty. This was the issue that prompted the creation of the automatic water level control and Automatic Pump Short Down ideals.

LIMITATION OF THE PROJECT

The most significant setback encountered over the course of this project was difficulty in locating the project’s design, followed by difficulty in obtaining the materials and components I needed for the project, such as a pump and a buffer for programming. It’s important to note that this design is only compatible with 12v, 5amp electric pumps and cannot be used to drive industrial water pumps with more than 5 amps.
