Development of working model of solar operated mini Seed driller
This project emphasizes on minimization of harmful efforts of using the manual seed driller and fogging cum sprayer pump. In the first part the new developed seed driller is operated on the solar power and it consist of different parts likes Solar plate, Battery 12 Volt D.C., Wiper motor, bearings, seed drilling pipe and its attachment and Seed Drilling box. In the new modified seed driller attachment is fixed at the back side and between the two bearings is attached with the frame for supporting wheel and wiper motor is attached to the front wheel. Solar plate is fixed on the upper part of the seed driller because of sun ray is directly on the solar plate and solar plate is directly connected to the wiper motor. Then start the rotating the motor is clockwise or anticlockwise depend upon the connection or as per our requirement.
In second part the new developed sprayer pump is operated on the solar power and it consist of different parts likes Solar plate, Battery 12 Volt D.C., motor, bearings, sprayer nozzle and its attachment and water tank. In the new modified sprayer pump attachment is fixed on the frame and between the two bearings is attached with the frame for supporting wheel and front wheel. Solar plate is fixed on the upper part of the sprayer pump because of sun ray is directly on the solar plate and solar plate is directly connected to the motor. Then start the rotating the motor is start rotating due to pressure is generated spray is generated in nozzle.
Now the project mainly concentrates on designing a suitable operating system. To maintain simplicity and economy in the design the locally fabricated unit has been used.
Our project achieves higher safety, reduces human effort, increases the efficiency of the grass cutter, reduces the work load, reduces the fatigue of workers and reduces maintenance cost.
Objective of the project 1 To understand the basic principal of the solar power 2 Describe the construction and working of various parts of our project 3 Development of the demonstration model of mini Seed Driller using Solar Power and fogging cum sprayer pump
