A boiler drum (BDT921) that is installed in the Control Laboratory in UTHM is being used as a model plant to achieve the digital control system since its analog. Implementing a digital system to BDT921 quite a though work. This paper covers analysis from the experiment done to match with digital design that will be implemented to the real system. The digital control design will come up with the mathematical model of the BDT921 and will be analyzed with MATLAB and SIMULINK software named as 'Discrete Analysis of BDT921 Simulation', while simulate with LABVIEW. PID controllers are being chosen as the control element in discrete form as the real system is using the same control element. The output responses behave as the second order system with a bit difference in rise times and peak times compared with data obtained from experiment. With regarding to the analysis done, the digital control can be implemented to the boiler control system and for further viewing, to be controlled digitally with computer in the control room.
