Smart Hydroponic System with Hybrid Power Source
Keywords:Charging, Hybrid, Microcontroller, Renewable,
AbstractIncreasing energy demands and global environmental impacts contribute to the needs for renewable energy source utilization. The integration of a smart hydroponic system with hybrid photovoltaic energy is a proposed alternative application in order to minimize the utility grid usage. The hybrid energy system for small scale hydroponics farm is designed for terrace house with a limited space for gardening. This hybrid energy control system is developed using Arduino Uno and tested using Proteus 8 Professional. The results from this study show that the implementation of hybrid power source capable of reducing at least 45 % utility grid power consumption when the light intensity maintain very high for about 12 hours per day.
