PLC based Automatic Dam Shutter Control System

Download Project Document/Synopsis



Dam is a barrier that stops or restricts the flow of water or underground streams. Dam is also used to collect water or for storage of water which can be evenly distributed among different locations. The farmers are dependent on seasonal rain and after that bore-well water for their crops. The dams have tremendous potential for economic upliftment and growth. They can help in checking floods and famines, generate electricity and reduce water and power shortage, provide irrigation water to lower areas, provide drinking water in remote areas. Dams are typically constructed with a drain or similar mechanism to control water levels in an impoundment for normal maintenance or emergency purposes. A disaster is any event that causes great harm or damage, serious or sudden misfortune. Dam failures clearly fit this definition. This dam shutter open/close system using plc will overcome such circumstances, it will manage the water level of the water reservoir automatically. At two different level, water is sensed according to which the gate is closed or open. That is when the water level goes above the threshold mark point level, door opens and it raises buzzer and the solenoid valve opens. When the water level goes down the door shuts automatically.
