Abstract

In this study, it was aimed to determine the design variables of solar powered drip irrigation systems for maize irrigation under Harran plain conditions. The number of drippers per decare (da) has been determined as 3571 and irrigation period will be done in a way that ends during the day. The power and flow rate of the irrigation pump is calculated as 3 kW and 5.5 m3 /h, respectively. The total installed power of the solar energy system is 5 kW.
