Plant operators have to physically monitor performance values and the quality of outputs to determine the best settings on which to run the production equipment. Maintenance is carried out at set intervals. This generally results in operational inefficiency and unsafe operating conditions. A process automation is used to automatically control a process such as food, chemical, oil refineries, paper and pulp Industries while considering energy efficiency. This paper focus on process automation
