Abstract :

FPGAs meet critical timing and performance requirements with parallel processing and real-time industrial application performance, permitting greater system integration and lower development cost. The aim of project is to describe the trends of industrial applications and FPGA enable solutions to meet design goals. We designed and implemented Industrial boiler automation application, where boiler drum level must be controlled to the limits specified by the boiler manufacturer. If the level exceeds the limits, boiler water carryover into the super-heater or the turbine may cause damage resulting in extensive maintenance costs or outages of either the turbine or the boiler. If the level is low, overheating of the water wall tubes may cause tube ruptures and serious accidents, resulting in expensive repairs. The water level in the main tank is controlled by a water level sensor, each boiler inlet / outlet pipes valves are controlled by temperature sensors located in each boiler.
