Abstract:

The cost of fuel and the effect of emission of gases from the burnt fuel into the atmosphere, this necessitated the use of the abundant solar energy from the sun as a source of power to drive a sprayer The Photovoltaic (PV) panel of 6 V, 5 W capacity configured to trap and convert the sun’s energy into the useful power was used to perform the work of spraying. Solar PV Panel was used for operating the sprayer and for charging a battery. The motor was used to regulate spraying liquid from the sprayer tank (5 lit.) and spray it through spinning disc nozzle. The SPV operated sprayer was provided with 6volt, 4.5amp lead acid battery which was used as alternative power source during cloudy atmosphere (in rainy season).
