Hi Guys

Assume that I have three AC generators 200KW,30KW,70KW and all three are paralleled, If I now connect a load that is 85KW, how will the load be shared among the three generators, (by means how much will each produce) ?

A Math formula would be great

And some show of effort by YOU to solve YOUR homework problem would be even greater.

What are the details on these threee AC generators? What are the source and line impedances between them and the load? Are these ideal generators?

I am a mechanical technician not an electric, that's why I am asking this here. this is not a job or any thing, just something I was thinking about, you never stop learning isn't that right ?

If you post in Homework Help, it will be assumed that you are requesting help on homework -- kinda goes along with the whole forum name thing.

There is no "Math Formula". It is possible to distribute the load across the 3 generators in any ratio.

If the generators, inspite of different ratings, have the same source impedence, by default, the load will be equally shared.

Good example of what?

The reference works through at least one example.

The principle is the same for DC or AC (for which you need vector arithmetic and I posted some examples somewhere try a search) and as many generators as you like.

Not sure what you are asking.

But an example of the kinds of information that would be useful would be the three questions in Post #2.
