Over the years, researches have been focused on different technological strategies to meet up with the increasing demand for high quality and reliable power supply. Prominent of these researches is electrical energy conservation and management. The objective of this paper is to find a relationship and equation that may relate between the demand loads and the required capacity of a thermal power station according to the generated power of a Photovoltaic (PV) of a farm. The resulting equation will help to find the optimum values of power capacities generated by the gen-set according to the generated power by the centralized PV system that varies up and down in terms of solar irradiance curve. An example is taken for one day of June (6 am to 12 pm) in Baalbak-Hermel region of Lebanon.
