ABSTRACT
Boiler is the main component in generating steam in thermal power generation units and its control is very important in many applications. In present situation conventional PID control is being used for this purpose. These conventional controllers in power plants are not very stable when there are fluctuations and, in particular, there is an emergency occurring. Continuous processes in power plant and power station are complex systems characterized by nonlinearity, uncertainty and load disturbances. The conventional controllers do not work accurately in a system having nonlinearity in it. So, an intelligent control using fuzzy logic is developed to meet the nonlinearity of the system for accurate control of the boiler steam temperature and water level.
