This paper proposes a novel approach for optimizing the total power output of a generalized power station with identical generators by analyzing the characteristics of the efficiency function. The introduced treatment yields the maximum total power supply and the maximum overall efficiency for the generalized power station. To achieve these, the input factor for each generator is kept the same, and the optimal switch points are selected to be the same efficiency points of two operating methods.
