This paper deals with automatic generation control of an interconnected hydrothermal system in continuous-discrete mode using conventional integral and proportional-integral controllers. Appropriate generation rate constraint has been considered for the thermal and hydro plants. The hydro area is considered with either mechanical or electric governor and thermal area is considered with either single or double reheat turbine. Performances of mechanical governor, electric governor, and single stage reheat turbine and two stage reheat turbine on dynamic responses have been explored. Further, selection of suitable value of speed regulation parameter R and sampling period has been investigated. System performance is examined considering 1% step load perturbation in either thermal or hydro area.
