As our power demand has increased, there has been a higher demand of electrical power on all sectors i.e industrial, commercial, domestic & residential etc. As the load increases, it is very important to manage load properly since a failure to do so results in frequency fluctuation and voltage drops. So it is mandatory to manage generation and load intelligently. This paper deals with automatic generation control of two area thermal-hydro power system. Simulation is done for two area interconnected Thermal- Hydro power system using MATLAB/Simulink Software. The control methodologies like Integral feedback, PI , Fuzzy logic controllers are used and comparative results of frequency deviation in respective area are shown with a 1% step disturbance. From the simulation study overshooting found in case of PI controller it is reduce by fuzzy logic controller but give more settling time.
