Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Boiler automation and monitoring of temperature and steam flow using Simulink
by Taaz, Zoya, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2017, 50; 10264655
Abstract (Summary)

In this project, a boiler control system is designed to introduce boiler automation in the industrial field. A boiler is a furnace that produces steam when water is heated and the steam produced by the boiler is used for power generation, central heating of a facility and other heating applications. In this project, a control system for a boiler is designed and simulated to reduce human interference in the boiler system. Automation uses control system for operating equipment such as machinery, boilers, and heat treating ovens. Automation also improves accuracy and precision. In this report, the output parameters for the boiler like temperature and steam flow are monitored. These parameters are observed under different conditions. All the simulation is done using Simulink, which offers a variety of blocks to design a model easily.
