In today's world, the requirement for power is increasing with waxing population. So, it is necessary to have the capability of producing uninterrupted power to all the consumers. Among the solutions available in today's global market, Inter-Networking is considered to be most effective in terms of cost and efficiency [1]. As we start looking into the epitome of automation it exists as one single structure which can be implemented for a limited number of tasks, in order to overcome such barrier, the concept of Internet of Things (IoT) is utilized. IoT gives a simple and optimum solution to complex system's complex challenges. Although there are several tiny units of automated processes, there is no proper centralized control unit which can act as a backbone to connect these individual automated units to reduce the complexity of the system [2]. Internet of Things (loT) is an extension of the current internet to provide communication, connection, and internetworking between various devices or physical objects. In this paper, a novel application of Internet of Things in the automation of thermal power plant through simulation using contemporary tools has been proposed.
