Abstract: This paper discusses about the measurement of optimization on feeder machine with automatic system control for aquaculture. This paper mainly aims to observe four main parts of feeding machine of aquaculture: major inlet, scale system, spiral tunnel, and throwing system. The observation done includes the energy of electricity usage of each unit of feeding weight which is processed, duration of process of each part, the exchange of rotor speeds, and the flow of feeding speed rate in gram per second. In this research, the design of feeding machine with automatic system based on Arduino Uno is conveyed. The feeds size used in this research are 2mm and 4mm. The measurement of optimization aims to consider the weight of the feeds, and the system of machine that works optimally. The result from experiment releases that the machine designed is able to work optimally on 2kg feeds of each process in 70 seconds and 71 seconds, and 0.085Wh on energy of electricity usage.
