(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Two 3-phase 60-hertz 35-kilovolt synchronous generators (G1 and G2) each have synchronous reactances of j9 ohms per phase with negligible armature resistance. They are connected in parallel to supply a 36-megawatt load at rated voltage and power factor of 0.90 lagging. G1 has an exci-tation voltage of 40 kilovolts line-to-line. G2 is operating at unity power factor. What is the real power dissipated by each generator

2. Relevant equations

Power Equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I have computed the reactive power of the load which is equal to that of g1 since g2 is in unity power factor. I originally planned to get the current through gen 1 to get its complex power ie S = VI* and V is given already. However further down the drain, I acquire a real power of purely Vars in form (it has an imaginary part only)
