Automatic Generation Control (AGC), which monitors the power system operation, may control whole power grid without blackouts. Here a two area thermal power system is simulated using integral and PI controllers by changing the loads of two areas simultaneously. A state space model is developed for the same system. For this model Linear Quadratic Regulator (LQR) is implemented to get better performance.
