“Can machines operating at part loads have different efficiencies than full loads?”


Machines can operate at variable loads. For example, an electric grid might be providing electricity to its entire network during the daytime and only a few houses at night. Because these different loads have different parameters, machines operating at partial loads have something called a part-load efficiency, or the efficiency when not at full (100%) loading.
