This paper presents the GRC & AGC techniques which are useful for the study for the methods of artificial intelligence  for  the automatic generation control of interconnected power systems. In the given paper, a control line of track is established for interconnected three area power system using generation rate constraints (GRC) &Artificial Neural Network (ANN). The ANN controller is simulated using MATLAB/SIMULINK technique. The waveforms of both (i.e. with & without) controllers are compared with 1% step load conditions.
