1 Power The power of a prime mover is its useful rate of working. When it is measured at its driving shaft(s), against a brake resistance, it is defined as brake power. e. the area on which the mean effective pressure works) w == the number of firing or working strokes per cylinder in a specified time N == the number of cylinders in the engine k == a constant, whose value depends upon the units used With the exception of wand k, these are the symbols established in Addendum 1 - 1982 of ISO 2710 (BS5676: Add 1: 1983) for use with RIC engines.

7 of Chapter 3. Performance Switchgear. The switchgear components most affected by operation at high temperatures and high altitude are air type circuit breakers and current carrying conductors - such as cables and busbars. Re-rating is needed for service conditions outside standard reference values. 2 in particular. 5 Performance factors affecting plant sizing The on-site electrical power required from the generating set determines the size of prime mover required. c. generator needs to be included in the calculation.
