Rain water harvesting in ireland main

  1. 1. RAIN WATER HARVESTING CONTROL SYSTEMMASTER OF ENGG. in ELECTRONICS DEVAL DIXIT
  2. 2. WHAT IS RAIN WATERHARVESTING Rainwater Harvesting is a technology utilized for collecting and storing rainwater from rooftops, land surfaces or road surfaces using simple techniques such as barrels, tanks and cistern method. Harvested rainwater is a renewable source of clean water that is ideal for domestic and agricultural uses as a supplementary source. Rain Run off water from Water storage in Water utility action(s) catchment reservoir
  3. 3. IRELANDS CLIMATE Irelands climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean. On average it rains 190 days of the year. Rainwater harvesting is ideal for Ireland’s high level of rainfall.
  4. 4. WATER UTILIZED IN HOUSES IN IRELAND
  5. 5. SCOPE OF STUDYAims and Objectives To develop a small scale project that provides the outstanding practice for energy efficiency measures and rain water harvesting. To measure the water savings from the rain water harvesting. Develop the control system that assess the quality and monitoring the volume of harvested water. Optimizing the model for a detailed financial analysis (low cost) with emphasis on domestic installation.
  6. 6. CONTROL SYSTEM METERING PLAN
  7. 7. ECONOMIC ANALYSIS OFRAINWATER HARVESTING Estimated cost benefit for rainwater harvesting facility with 2mᶾstorage tank. In the domestic scenario, rainwater harvesting has a vital role to play in reducing mains demand. Rainwater can, depending upon demand for toilet use, substitute between 37-100% of mains water for toilet flushing facilities. This in turn leads to an overall saving of between 19-33% curtailment in demand for mains water. Cost of treatment of water taken at €0.34/m3.
  8. 8. TECHNOLOGY REVIEW Capacitive Sensor : Here capacitive sensor is employed as a Insufficient rainwater control monitor. It will sense the water level of the rainwater header tank The Texas Instruments MSP430 family of ultra- low-power microcontroller is in use, it consists of several devices featuring different sets of peripherals addressed for various applications.
  9. 9. The MSP-EXP430G2 Launchpad is an easy-to-use flashprogrammer and debugging tool for the MSP430G2xx ValueLine microcontrollers. MSP-EXP430G2 Launchpad for MSP430 16-Bit Microcontrollers
  10. 10. CONCLUSIONS Rainwater harvesting is a viable water conservation measure that has the potential to accord to the sustainability of raw water sources and to the viability of water treatment plants. Harvested rainwater has potential to provide augmented source to treated mains water for non-potable uses. There is need to be ample aid in the forms of grants or other schemes from the government to promote the installation of rainwater harvesting systems in Ireland. The potential benefits of rainwater harvesting are not widely apprehended and this should be addressed through educational awareness programmes.
  11. 11. BENEFITS OF RWH SYSTEM Notably reduces water charges and water utility expenditures. Following installation of rainwater harvesting system it is completely free to use and requires little or no maintenance. Rainwater systems can easily be installed into premises normally within 48 hours at site. Rainwater is an inevitable and pure form of water. Curtail demand on municipal water supply.
