Looking for an Embedded System Based project? How about the Water Level Controller project? Learn the basics of this project through the content of this article and make your embedded training worth.
Let’s get started.
Project Objective: To control the overflow of water in the tank.
The Water level controller as per its name control and indicate the water level in the tank. Talking about the hardware, you can start this project with Microcontroller, Current driver, four sensors, and a Relay connected to pump.
The whole concept is to automatically off and on the pump when water reaches at the two extreme points of tank i.e. highest and lowest point. For this four sensors can be used, two at the extremities of the tank, one at the foot valve, and the last at the water delivery pipe.
Now, lets’ learn it practically.
When do you want to switch on the pump connected to your water tank? Of course, when the tank is empty and you want to fill it completely by running the motor.
Practically what happens is that whenever the tank goes empty, you manually switch on the water pump and wait till it gets completely filled. And finally, you switch it off to avoid water overflow. This is what you do normally, right?
Now, let’s see how does embedded system based project, water level controller automate this task?
The working process
When the water in the tank reaches at the two extremities i.e. either the highest position or the lowest position, the attached sensors send a signal to the Micro-controller about the same.
Here, the Micro-controller is the hero of this whole project. The Micro-controller via current driver IC switches off/on the pump depending upon the need.
If the water reaches the top-most position, it will switch off the motor to avoid water overflow. And if the water reaches at the lower-most position, it will switch on the pump to fill the tank. In short, Microcontroller controls the water level of the tank and automates the whole process.
You might be wondering what happened to the delivery pipe and foot valve? Well, micro-controller controls these also. The sensors placed at the foot valve and delivery pipe helps microcontroller to analyze the water status at these two positions. If there is no water in the foot valve and delivery pipe, that means there is a shortage of water and microcontroller switch on the pump to allow the passage of water into the foot valve and delivery pipe.
Hope you have got enough idea about the project. Also, you can learn more about such projects in MVA’s Embedded Systems Courses.
