1. A system for hydraulically fracturing an underground formation in an oil or gas well to extract oil or gas from the formation, the oil or gas well having a wellbore that permits passage of fluid from the wellbore into the formation, the system comprising:

  • a plurality of electric pumps fluidly connected to the well, and configured to pump fluid into the wellbore at high pressure so that the fluid passes from the wellbore into the formation, and fractures the formation;

    a plurality of generators electrically connected to the plurality of electric pumps to provide electrical power to the electric pumps; and

    a centralized control unit coupled to the plurality of electric pumps and the plurality of generators, wherein the centralized control unit is configured to;

    monitor at least one of pressure and temperature of the plurality of electric pumps and the plurality of generators.
