The biogas generator system put into practice has the deficiencies of poor stability, robustness and real-time, which has impacted the promotion and development of biogas power generation technology greatly. Anaerobic digestion (AD) systems are extremely sensitive to changes in environmental variables. The efficiency of biogas production during anaerobic digestion depends heavily on optimal dosing ratios and stable operations which cannot be achieved without accurate and reliable monitoring and control of the dry matter (DM) and organic dry matter (oDM) content. Correct design and control of the system’s parameters are essential to maximize process efficiency, increase stability, and prevent system failure. Monitoring systems can help both raise plant availability and help meet the transparency requirements of the process. The project is a prototype of a system that makes use of sensors and micro-controller. It can be used in the biogas system as an external hardware. The prototype is controlled by the ESP8266 controller, which can be programmed and constructed as required by the user. By monitoring the system, the result gives an accurate condition of the biogas unit which can be monitored and corrected in future.
