A process of design for operating sets with pulse irrigation has been developed. The process allows for an efficient operation and also adjust the operating sets to the characteristics of the pulse as formulated in a previous work. The adjustment expresses itself mainly in the establishment of the number of stations operating with one pulsator and to the various parameters of the pulse. The process allows for the design of number of sets and stations when the total duration of irrigation and total number of valves in the field, are given. The number of sets and stations per set must be established so as to have identical number of stations per set. The characteristics of the remaining stations will be different as its number is smaller and the duration time of operation is maximal.
