The perception of this paper based on a project done for adjusting and monitoring of fuel supply in power plant boilers using LabVIEW. For power generation, in thermal power plant system water is converted to steam and the steam is send it to the high pressure turbine in order to rotate the shaft then the power has been produced. The Natural Gas (Methane, CH4) is used as more reliable fuel for boilingthe water. The fuel supply is controlled by using Programmable Logical Controller (PLC) mechanism. The proposed method has implemented using LabVIEW for monitoring and controlling the fuel supply for increasing the fuel efficiency and safety. Fuel Supply System (FSS) has modeled in LabVIEW for easy access of the system. The communication between the LabVIEW and PLC is done by using Object Linking and Embedding for Process Control (OPC) server software. This proposed method the natural gas is controlled and energize, two boilers and one pilot's gun is used for ignition.
