Electrical energy concurrent which cannot be stored so must be utilized as soon as it is generated. Therefore it requires an effective balance of power flow within multi area power system. This paper studies about a two area system [Hydro power plant & PMSG based Wind energy conversion system] which is connected through a tie line. Due to the rapid fluctuation in the wind power it causes disturbance in frequency which affects the active power of the system. To overcome this problem tie line must be stabilized using load frequency control in both the areas of power system. The simulation results for proving the efficiency of PLFC are illustrated. This is achieved by embedding PLFC in PMSG control system for both the area of power system.
