Energy lack trouble united with fresh lofty petroleum cost has effected in strict crashes to various technical parts. In the past various decades, huge quantity of usual capitals of the earth have been unlimitedly used, and our living setting has been strictly razed and infected. An electrical grid may have several types of generators and loads; generators should be managed to preserve steady process of the system. In power systems, the inequity between generation and load should get exacted in tiny times, or else it will make the power line frequency to stray from the small worth. Huge frequency variation might intimidate the constancy and safety of the power system, or still bad, source eternal injure to the services. So in this article matching generation with load and regulating frequency at the usual point was calculated applying AGC with different controllers in two-area hydro-thermal power system.
