Abstract

This paper presents a photovoltaic powered water pump system. The system was created to overcome the temperature problem on growing plant because the nature temperature not stable. The system is intent to make life easier in care the plantation growth. With the temperature sensing and photovoltaic that can save more energy by recharge the battery from the power source of photovoltaic meanwhile the plant will growth smoothly. The system consists of photovoltaic panel, 12 V solar charger, battery 12 V, 5 V power supply, temperature sensor, controller of water and direct current (DC) water pump. By using photovoltaic panel as a source to generate the DC water pump and to recharge the battery, the energy can be save more compare to electricity. The energy created by the photovoltaic panel are depend on the weather either the day are cloudy, rainy or sunny.
