# Sensitivity of Materials in an Optimal Control Model of the Electric Power Generator System

### Abstract

The electric power generating systems which is expressed mathematically with an optimal control model relates two or more parameters that can be used to measure the condition or state of electric power generating systems. These parameters enable us to know the condition and the capacity of the generator, how to use, and how long to use, in order to maximize the general output and minimize the cost of generation. The sensitivity of the parameters is an approach given to a model so as to define the relative importance of the factors related to the model, because the whole parameter space is fully described. In this work, the sensitivity of parameters in an optimal control model of the electric power generation system proposed by Bamigbola and Aderinto (2009) is investigated so as to determine the relative importance of each parameter on the model results.
