Development of Variable Rate System for Disinfection Based on Injection Technique

Abstract : A variable soil pesticide injection system was developed for control of soil pesticide amount by PWM. The paper analyzed a algorithmic model of control system, and designed hardware, algorithm and control of soil pesticide, mainly software flow and a feedback control way. In the paper, the variable-rate control system was consisted of infrared sensor, speed sensor, PWM valve, and pump motor. According to the amount of soil pesticide information, controller can automatically control flow amount by adjusting solid solenoid valve and PWM valve based on working speed, which changes the pulse duty cycle to achieve the variable work. Injection experiments of soil pesticide was pre-set different dosage, the results shown that pesticide amount was precise in fact, and the errors was less than 3.2 %. The system could achieve variable rate injection of liquid pesticide into deep soil based on infrared sensor. Fitting equation of flow amount by adjusting PWM valve based on working speed could draw the R2 value of 0.935. The chip can calculate the output PWM duty cycle according to the pre-set injection of soil pesticide amount after collected the speed of tractor. The feedback control is to regulate the PWM signal duty cycle according the real liquid flow obtained by the microcontroller chip which collected the output signal of liquid sensor which fixed on pesticide pipeline.
