Equivalent Power

 

an arbitrary power rating used, for example, in the analysis of statistical data to compare engines, machines, and other equipment of different powers in order to depict them as a given number of machines having the same power rating. Thus, data on a tractor fleet in the USSR are sometimes converted into arbitrary units of 15-hp tractors (1 hp = 0.736 kilowatt), that is, 15 hp at the drawbar is taken to be the equivalent power. A tractor that develops 75 hp at the drawbar, then, is equivalent to five tractors of 15 hp each.

The total duration of surgery, ultrasound (U/S) total time, U/S total equivalent power in foot position 3, cumulative dissipated energy, phacoemulsification time, average phacoemulsification power and average phacoemulsification power in foot position 3 were compared using the independent t-test whereas the nucleus grade was compared using the paired samples t- test between first and second eyes.
The 805-megawatt (MW) combined-cycle plant can provide the equivalent power needed to supply more than 800,000 US homes, and the HA's dual-fuel capability allows the turbines to run on a variety of fuels, adding significant reliability benefits to the region.
'If they recommended judges and justices and it turns out that the ones they recommended were up to no good, they should also be given the equivalent power to inA!vestigate,' he said.
The project is among the largest gas-fired combined cycle plants in the country, expected to add up to 1,230 megawatts (MW) to Pakistan's national grid - the equivalent power needed to meet the electricity needs of up to 2.5 million Pakistani homes.
Upon completion, the three plants are expected to deliver up to 3,600 megawatts of electricity- the equivalent power needed to supply up to 7.3 million Pakistani homes- over 30+ year life cycle, making a meaningful difference in the everyday lives of the people of Pakistan.
where x = [([x.sub.1], [x.sub.2], * * * , [x.sub.N]).sup.T] defined the district configuration and building indices, see Equation 4; g(x) is the district performance function; [P.sub.avg] is the district average equivalent power; [P.sub.i] is the instantaneous district equivalent power; and N is the number of load profile time steps.
The innovative concept takes just two minutes to lay out and can deliver the equivalent power of the needs of around three average UK homes.
It has a coaxial format that makes it smaller even though it has equivalent power output, which means that it can be readily integrated.
Starting with the design, the integrated coaxial format means that the electric drive (eDrive) unit is significantly smaller than other systems with equivalent power outputs.
With a capacity of 605 MW, the plant can gener- ate the equivalent power needed to supply 680,000 homes, and the tip of the propel- ler blade clocks a speed of 1,931kmph -- 1.5 times the speed of sound.
It is projected to generate up to 1,180 MW - the equivalent power needed to supply approximately 2.5 million Pakistani homes - once it starts combined cycle operations later this year.A spokesman of the ministry of water and power confirmed that Bhikki is partially producing power following the closure of one of the units.
