You are having trouble because you misunderstand the basic rule of eletrical power supply.
The power delivered is determined by the Load not by the generator.
Start there and put some flesh on the bones by specifying the detail.
Electrical power - AC or DC?
Maximum power transfer theorem?
No of phases?
Nature of load?
Number of generators?
