Internet of Things Based Autonomous Borewell Management System
Water is a basic need for all living beings. At present, due to a large population, water level is getting depleted at an alarming rate particularly in urban region. During summer season, there is no continuous flow of water or availability of water. In electrical contingency situations, bore-wells are prone to damages. The utilization of power at dry run condition affects the economy of the consumers. Despite having no water in the bore-well, if the motor runs, the motor windings may burdened and gives rise to unnecessary power loss. In the present scenario, conservation of energy is a major concern. The conservation of energy as a whole will take place when an individual take an active part by using autonomous and effective methodologies or controllers. The issue is solved by managing the borewell using Internet of Things (IoT) as a platform to automate and manage. The IoT based borewell management system is designed to provision scheduling, manual operation, avoidance of borewell motor running at dry run condition and also nullifies energy loss. The automated borewell operations can be executed from a remote control and measurement unit by the measurement of electrical parameters and analytics. The proposed system minimizes man power, saves time and conserve energy loss. The paper presents operating the conventional borewell by deployment of smart controller which handles the information and communication technology at client and base units.
