Thus, the linearised NR equations are :

and since P
1
+ P
2
= 180, by solving, we get,
P
1
= 88.89 MW and P
2
= 91.11 MW. (3 Marks)
Thus, F
1
= 5255.88 Rs./Hr. and F
2
= 4958.55 Rs./Hr.
Therefore, total cost of generation = F
1
+ F
2
= 10214.43 Rs./ Hr. (2 Marks)
If now, the load is 90 MW, then, the costs of generation would be;
F
1
= 5340 Rs./Hr. and F
2
= 4875 Rs./Hr., so that the total cost of generation is;
F
1
+ F
2
= 10215 Rs./ Hr.
Thus saving in cost is: Rs.0.57 per hour of operation. (3 Marks)
