Introduction: Over the years the demand for high quality, greater efficiency and automated machines has increased in the industrial sector of power plants.

Power plants require continuous monitoring and inspection at frequent intervals. There are possibilities of errors at measuring and various stages involved with human workers and also the lack of few features of microcontrollers.

Thus this paper takes a sincere attempt to explain the advantages the companies will face by implementing automation into them.
The boiler control which is the most important part of any power plant, and its automation is the precise effort of this paper.

In order to automate a power plant and minimize human intervention, there is a need to develop a SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system that monitors the plant and helps reduce the errors caused by humans.

While the SCADA is used to monitor the system, PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) is also used for the internal storage of instruction for the implementing function such as logic, sequencing, timing, counting and arithmetic to control through digital or analog input/ out put modules various types of machines processes.
