This paper presents the use of SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) and PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) for fault detection in an industrial generation system along with test bench facility. This project is of immense importance on industrial scale as it ensures the safety of all the equipment used in the process. To prevent an industry from a bigger loss it is a one-time investment that is conventionally used. This system will provide online monitoring in control room of the generation system. This system will automatically detect the generation faults in field and these faults will be monitored on SCADA. If the system detects any kind of fault it will automatically shut down the generator. The generator can be switched on from petrol to gas using SCADA and can control and manage the distribution load with the help of our HMI. The system will detect the fault with the help of sensors which are installed on the generator then sensors will send the signal to PLC further monitored on SCADA. This project is not only limited to industrial use but it can also be use for domestic and commercial purposes.
