    the output each one is required to put forth

    Hello everybody!

    By running two generators in parallel, you reduce the output each one is required to put forth.

    I am especially interested in knowing the meaning of the part under discussion.

    In my opinion, the whole sentence can read as follows:

    By running two generators in parallel, you reduce the total power which/that each of the two generators should produce.

    In other words, the total power is distributed between each of the two generators or the total power is shared by each of the two generators or the total power is divided between each of the two generators or the total power is spread on each of the two generators.

    Do you think my reasoning makes sense?

    Thank you.

    You should brush your teeth every day - This doesn't mean that you will brush your teeth every day, it only says that is what is expected.

    She should arrive at 10PM - But she did arrive at 11:30PM.


    In other words, the total power is distributed between each of the two generators or the total power is shared by each of the two generators or the total power is divided between each of the two generators or the total power is spread on each of the two generators.

    Do you think my reasoning makes sense? There is no indication that the generators will share the output. One may put out 80% and the other 20%. All we know for sure is that the effort of one is reduced by the addition of the second one.

    Thank you.

    Given your comments, I think it would be right to write the sentence as follows:

    By running two generators in parallel, you reduce the total power which/that each of the two generators is expected to produce.

    Yes.

    I disagree with the word "total." Why are you using it to speak of the output of one generator?

    The "total" power is the same. If your load is 100 MW, then the total power that is required is 100 MW. In a system with balanced load sharing, each would supply 50 MW.
