The fuel cost functions of two power plants are

Plant $${P_1}:\,{C_1} = 0.05\,Pg_1^2 + AP{g_1} + B$$

Plant $${P_2}:\,{C_2} = 0.10\,Pg_2^2 + 3AP{g_2} + 2B$$

Where, $$P{g_1}$$ and $$P{g_2}$$ are the generator powers of two plants and $$A$$ and $$B$$ are the constants. If the two plants optimally share $$1000$$ $$MW$$ load at incremental fuel cost of $$100$$ $$Rs/MWh,$$ the ratio of load shared by plants $${P_1}$$ and $${P_2}$$ is

A load center of 120 MW derives power from two power stations connected by 220 kV transmission lines of 25 km and 75 km as shown in the figure below. The three generators G1,G2 and G3 are of 100 MW capacity each and have identical fuel cost characteristics. The minimum loss generation schedule for supplying the 120 MW load is

A lossless power system has to serve a load of $$250$$ $$MW.$$ There are two generators ($$G1$$ and $$G2$$) in the system with cost curves $${C_1}$$ and $${C_2}$$ respectively defined as follows:

$${C_1}\left( {{P_{G1}}} \right) = {P_{G1}} + 0.055 \times P_{G1}^2$$

$${C_2}\left( {{P_{G2}}} \right) = 3{P_{G2}} + 0.03 \times P_{G2}^2$$

Where $${P_{G1}}$$ and $${P_{G2}}$$ are the MW injections from generator $${G_1}$$ and $${G_2}$$ respectively. Thus, the minimum cost dispatch will be

$${C_1}\left( {{P_{G1}}} \right) = {P_{G1}} + 0.055 \times P_{G1}^2$$

$${C_2}\left( {{P_{G2}}} \right) = 3{P_{G2}} + 0.03 \times P_{G2}^2$$

Where $${P_{G1}}$$ and $${P_{G2}}$$ are the MW injections from generator $${G_1}$$ and $${G_2}$$ respectively. Thus, the minimum cost dispatch will be
