Parallel computing is a type of computation in which jobs are executed by the parallel servers. Jobs are further distributed into number of tasks by checking the availability of server. Federated Grid System is a system consists of number of heterogenous clusters which are associated with number of servers. Comparison with existing work on the basis of parameters such as makspan, flow time and energy. The time taken by a single job to accomplish its task is flow time and the time taken by all the jobs to accomplish its task is the makespan of that jobs. DVFS levels are considered in a system to reduce the power consumption during the execution of parallel jobs. In our proposed system we have used DVFS based genetic algorithm so that the job acquired by parallel processors provide optimal results.
