It synchronizes the generators, which would run out-of-phase if they dont all run at the same frequency. Power would not be constant. Imagine a digital and analog clock. The analog clock will keep track of time at a constant pace. If the frequency was increased in the power supply to the digital clock, the time will move faster. Therefore, they would no longer be in synch.
