Heating rate

« Back to Glossary Index

The heat­ing rate is a mea­sure of the ef­fi­cien­cy of elec­tri­cal gen­er­a­tors (e.g. gen­er­a­tor, elec­tric mo­tor) that con­vert fu­els in­to heat and in­to elec­tric­i­ty. The heat­ing rate is the amount of en­er­gy con­sumed by an elec­tri­cal gen­er­a­tor to pro­duce one kilo­watt hour (kWh) of elec­tric­i­ty. The low­er the heat­ing rate of a sys­tem, the high­er its ef­fi­cien­cy and en­er­gy efficiency.
