The requirement for making coal fired stations intelligent arises from the beed for highly efficient plant operation and asset management on one hand and wide scale penetration of renewable energy (solar photovoltaic and wind) into the grid which results in rapid cycling of the thermal plants, on the other hand. Ramping up or down of thermal plants hitherto was through manual load setting or through the free governor mode of operation. With the entrance of rapidly varying renewable generation, the need for automatic load setting on the thermal plants through intelligent features arises...

Coal popularly known as black diamond is a national resource which needs to be used efficiently for energy security. By 2016, the percentage of coal requirement for power generation is likely to go to 82% of the total coal production (520 million tonnes/year) and the import is likely to go to 38% (200 million tonnes/year). The increase in coal consumption is not only because of new capacity addition but also because of deterioration of coal quality (in terms of its heating value). Presence of surface moisture, its liability and control needs to be understood on a broader national perspective.
