Microcontroller based pump controller

In countries including Indonesia, Mexico, Guatemala, and El Salvador, India, a city water 
authority supplies the clean water and pumps it into large ground-level storage tanks. A 
resident’s water pump then pumps the water to a water tank on top of his/her house. When the 
water level in the ground-level storage tank becomes too low, the pump siphons air and shuts 
down, requiring a resident to manually prime the water pump to get it running again. Residents 
struggle to monitor the water level of the tanks effectively and keep the pump running properly. 
To remedy the issue, the Automatic Water Pump Controller (AWPC) system monitors the water 
levels and controls the pump as necessary to prevent breakdown and maximize water storage 
without overfilling the rooftop tank and wasting water,

A Texas Instrument MSP430G2553 microcontroller was chosen to control the relay 
based on the inputs of the float switches. A 10kΩ pull-up resistor was used for each float switch 
when connecting to the microcontroller. The MSP430G2553 was especially a good choice for 
this project as it is very low power consumption and can be powered from as low as 3V.      (Rather than that i am a big fan you electronoobs i love your videos and please don't conclude my love in above project and i am a student of 10th class hobbyist can i email you when i have doubts in projects please guide me i only mail project related videos 😊🥰)
