The use of condensers as heat exchangers has an important role in PLTU. The condition of the condenser hotwell level must be maintained so that the boiler components that use feed water experience overheating in the boiler tube. In this study, the condenser hotwell level will be controlled using the feedforward feedback loop control method. Control performance is obtained by testing the setpoint changes and disturbances. Good performance results are indicated by the low value of settling time, maximum overshoot, and IAE. and the results of the simulation carried out are the maximum overshoot value obtained from the set point test and disturbance testing +5% and +5%, namely 0.7516% and 0.36%; The IAE values obtained were 0.0122% and 0.005516477% with ts of each it is 180 and 130 s.
