Remote-control and Supervision of Irrigation Systems: An Attempt to Better Water Management

Anas Kamoun, Mohamed Ksontini and Zoubeir Ghorbel    

Abstract: This study deals with the control of an irrigation system in order to insure a good management of water use. In a first step, the control problem of open irrigation channels was considered. To this end, a fuzzy controller for an irrigation channel was developed to control the flow released from the dam to satisfy a set flow specified at the downstream of the system as well as the demand of the users at different points of the withdrawal. In a second step, a supervision stage dedicated to agricultural irrigation systems was proposed. The objective was to control the water distribution in different parcels to irrigate. To this end, the considered water management system, its equipment and its control software architecture were presented. A functional study of the system was achieved using the GTST-MPLD method (Goal Tree Success Tree-Master Plan Logical Diagram). Finally, supervision tools associated with the developed irrigation system were exposed.
