Smart Water Distribution System Using PLC And HMI

Sanket Milind Deshpande, Pratik Sunil Yadav, Saurabh Sunil Bhave, Rahul Ramesh Awale


The increasing population and thus the wide expansion of urban residential areas have increased the need of proper sharing of water. This distribution of water in every house within different areas needs the control and monitoring for preventing the wastage of water and the water theft practices. Different technologies have been studied to distribute/supply the water to each and every house of residential areas. The main aim of this project is to provide effective water supply to each consumer & to detect the leakage sites and malpractices. In this project we are working on the distributed network under the area of single water tank. Mainly we are focusing on the pressure transmitter which are located at different branches in distribution network to indicate pressure variation at different location. The entire system has features of HMI (Human Machine Interface) system to monitor the water supply and in case of power failures to maintain continuity of power supply. At the start the exact idea about automatic water distribution for different areas with its proposed system is discussed, and then its several technologies are discussed.
