Power generated by a utility unit that operates at a very high capacity factor.
The maximum load that a generating unit, power plant, or other electrical apparatus can carry under specified conditions for a given period of time, without exceeding its approved limits of temperature and stress.
The load that a power generation unit or other electrical apparatus or heating unit is rated by the manufacture to be able to meet or supply.
A generator producing alternating current by the rotation of its rotor, and which is powered by a primary mover.
A reserve appliance; for example, a standby generator for a home or commercial building.
A process for carrying out a reaction in which the reactants are fed in discrete and successive charges.

The heat liberated by the combustion of a unit quantity of a fuel under specific conditions; measured in calories.
The amount of energy (in electron volts) required to free an outer shell electron from its orbit about the nucleus to a free state, and thus promote it from the valence to the conduction level.
