Thermal power plants are the most common sources for generation of electricity. These plants also pollute the environment mostly. They emit many harmful gases to the atmosphere apart from fly ash, which itself has many harmful health effects. The Ministry of Environment, Forest & Climate Change has notified the revised standards for coal-based Thermal Power Plants in the country, with the primary aim of minimizing pollution.

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...
