if a generator is generating 20MW and only 5MW is used you have two cases . case one if this generator is connected to a grid ,then the 15 MW will be consumed in the grid. case 2 , if this generator in feeding the load directly it will never reach 20 MW , only the speed and the frequency will increase but the generator power will remain 5 MW.

P=T.w , p is the power , t is torqur, w is the angular speed , w=2.pi .f
