Abstract:

Pump is the vital part of a irrigation system with the enhancement of irrigation pump population is increasing at a rapid rate but the operating efficiency is not taken care. Majority of the pumpsets are being operated at a poor efficiency of 20-30%.Causes of this poor performance are improper selection of pump, poor foundation, poor maintenance and excessive suction lift. Out of these four poor foundation is found in almost all pumps ie it is not any considerable point for the users. In order to understand the effect of various common foundations used by farmers present study was conducted. Six foundation conditions ie R.C.C. foundation, Wooden Rafter, M.S Channel, Hanging pump set with the help of chain, No foundation (No foundation) and Loose bricks were created in the laboratory and same unit was tested on each of them. Performance in terms of efficiency was evaluated. R.C.C. foundation gave maximum efficiency and loose bricks minimum.
