This paper present analysis on dynamic performance of Load Frequency Control (LFC) of three area interconnected thermal-hudro-nuclear power station by the use of PI Controller. In this paper area-1, area-2 and area-3 consists of hydro, nuclear power plants whereas area-3 consists of thermal power plant. In this proposed scheme, the combination of most complicated system like thermal, hydro plant and nuclear plant are interconnected which increases the nonlinearity of the system. The performances of the controllers are simulated using MATLAB/SIMULINK package. The simulation results also tabulated as a comparative performance in view of frequency deviation by three different interconnected power plants.
