This paper focus on the performance of an industrial boiler using fuzzy logic controller. The parameter of the various industrial boilers is subjected to the change due to change in the environment or atmosphere. This parameter may be categorized as steam, pressure and temperature of the industrial boiler in use. In this paper work, a strategy of fuzzy logic controller called fuzzy supervisory is used which generates set points for the conventional controllers. This work also compared the performance of a boiler evaporator system when the system is controlled by a traditional proportional integral derivatives type strategy and when the system is controlled using fuzzy logic blocs to provide set point for it. The main change consists of representing only the behavior of the drum evaporator system having a partial model of the combustion process with a simplified combustion control system and a three element boiler feed water receives a supervisory signal that comes from fuzzy logic to improve the performance of the overall control system.
