The control and monitoring of heater operation are covered in this paper. A boiler is a large component in an enterprise that heats water and produces steam. Steam can be utilised to run turbines or engines. In this project, the boiler's functioning is controlled by a PIC microcontroller, which regulates the boiler's temperature and pressure. This is due to the fact that PICs are highly adaptable, low-cost, space-efficient, and reduce complexity. The data from the microcontroller is received by SCADA and shown on the screen. The suggested boiler automation ensures that the boiler system, and thus the power production plant, runs safely, reliably, and continuously.Boilers are used in many industrial and commercial buildings to create hot water or steam for space or process heating. Boiler setup is made using LPG cylinder and heater is placed in the cylinder so that it acts as boiler. Pressure and temperature sensor is used to measure theĀ  both pressure and temperature in the boiler. To control temperature, pump is placed and when the temperature goes beyond the certain level pump automatically turns ON and the feedwater is supplied. When the pressure goes beyond the limit solenoid valve turns ON and steam released through the solenoid valve. LCD is placed to monitor the values from outside. This page discusses the many type of boilers are used to heat buildings, as well as fundamental boiler controls and factors that influence energy efficiency.
