Paper Abstract

An optical sensor has been designed and developed to measure transmitted light through water samples for the retrieval of total suspended solids TSS concentrations. The proposed optical system uses light emitting diodes LEDs to transmit light through the total suspended solids in water samples. The transmitted radiation values were obtained from output voltage readings of the multimeter of the optical detector. The voltage readings are correlated with the TSS concentrations of the samples. A developed algorithm was used to determine the relationship between these two parameters. The results showed a good correlation between the radiation values and the total suspended solids TSS concentrations. The accuracy is high and low value of the root mean square.
