The design and installation of a solar-powered irrigation system with the goal of improving agricultural sustainability is the main emphasis of this project. It starts with a methodical approach that outlines the demands of the system, evaluates solar resources, and determines irrigation requirements. These elements prioritize efficiency and integration while choosing components. In the next chapters on system design, we will discuss the Solar Photovoltaic (PV) System, Energy Storage, Water Pumping, Irrigation Distribution, and Control and Monitoring Systems, explaining the critical roles that each of these components plays in providing effective, long-lasting irrigation. The project investigates optimization strategies, with a focus on performance measurements, sophisticated scheduling algorithms, intelligent control systems, weather forecasts, and economical water use. The project's practical effects are demonstrated through a case study in the Rangpur area of Bangladesh. The research highlights observable advantages including higher food yields, energy security, lower emissions, and groundwater preservation. The paper evaluates factual data, economic evaluations, and suggestions to provide a thorough grasp of the revolutionary potential of solar-powered irrigation for agricultural sustainability.
