The ampere (symbol: A), often shortened to "amp",SI supports only the use of symbols and deprecates the use of abbreviations for units.
Backfeeding is flow of electrical energy in the reverse direction from its normal flow.
Bi-fuel vehicles, also known as dual fuel vehicles, are vehicles with multifuel engines capable of running on two fuels.
Biodiesel refers to a vegetable oil- or animal fat-based diesel fuel consisting of long-chain alkyl (methyl, ethyl, or propyl) esters.
Biogas typically refers to a mixture of different gases produced by the breakdown of organic matter in the absence of oxygen.
Carbon monoxide poisoning typically occurs from breathing in too much carbon monoxide (CO).
A cart is a vehicle designed for transport, using two wheels and normally pulled by one or a pair of draught animals.
Cogeneration or combined heat and power (CHP) is the use of a heat engine or power station to generate electricity and useful heat at the same time.
Diesel fuel in general is any liquid fuel used in diesel engines, whose fuel ignition takes place, without any spark, as a result of compression of the inlet air mixture and then injection of fuel.
A diesel generator is the combination of a diesel engine with an electric generator (often an alternator) to generate electrical energy.
A diesel locomotive is a type of railway locomotive in which the prime mover is a diesel engine.
A diesel multiple unit or DMU is a multiple-unit train powered by on-board diesel engines.
A diesel–electric transmission, or diesel–electric powertrain, is used by a number of vehicle and ship types for providing locomotion.
In electricity generation, a generator is a device that converts motive power (mechanical energy) into electrical power for use in an external circuit.
Electric power is the rate, per unit time, at which electrical energy is transferred by an electric circuit.
An engine or motor is a machine designed to convert one form of energy into mechanical energy.
Europe is a continent located entirely in the Northern Hemisphere and mostly in the Eastern Hemisphere.
A fossil fuel power station is a power station which burns a fossil fuel such as coal, natural gas, or petroleum to produce electricity.
Frequency is the number of occurrences of a repeating event per unit of time.
Fuel dyes are dyes added to fuels, as in some countries it is required by law to dye a low-tax fuel to deter its use in applications intended for higher-taxed ones.
Gasoline (American English), or petrol (British English), is a transparent, petroleum-derived liquid that is used primarily as a fuel in spark-ignited internal combustion engines.
In rail transport, head-end power (HEP) or electric train supply (ETS) is the electrical power distribution system on a passenger train.
A hybrid electric bus combines a conventional internal combustion engine propulsion system with an electric propulsion system.
Hydrogen is a chemical element with symbol H and atomic number 1.
A motor–generator (an M–G set) is a device for converting electrical power to another form.
Natural gas is a naturally occurring hydrocarbon gas mixture consisting primarily of methane, but commonly including varying amounts of other higher alkanes, and sometimes a small percentage of carbon dioxide, nitrogen, hydrogen sulfide, or helium.
In microeconomic theory, the opportunity cost, also known as alternative cost, is the value (not a benefit) of the choice in terms of the best alternative while making a decision.
Peaking power plants, also known as peaker plants, and occasionally just "peakers", are power plants that generally run only when there is a high demand, known as peak demand, for electricity.
A power conditioner (also known as a line conditioner or power line conditioner) is a device intended to improve the quality of the power that is delivered to electrical load equipment.
A power inverter, or inverter, is an electronic device or circuitry that changes direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC).
In engineering, a prime mover is an engine that converts fuel to useful work.
Propane is a three-carbon alkane with the molecular formula C3H8.
A reciprocating engine, also often known as a piston engine, is typically a heat engine (although there are also pneumatic and hydraulic reciprocating engines) that uses one or more reciprocating pistons to convert pressure into a rotating motion.
Single-phase generator (also known as single-phase alternator) is an alternating current electrical generator that produces a single, continuously alternating voltage.
A steam engine is a heat engine that performs mechanical work using steam as its working fluid.
A trailer is an unpowered vehicle towed by a powered vehicle.
A transfer switch is an electrical switch that switches a load between two sources.
A turbocharger, or colloquially turbo, is a turbine-driven forced induction device that increases an internal combustion engine's efficiency and power output by forcing extra air into the combustion chamber.
The volt (symbol: V) is the derived unit for electric potential, electric potential difference (voltage), and electromotive force.
A volt-ampere (VA) is the unit used for the apparent power in an electrical circuit, equal to the product of root-mean-square (RMS) voltage and RMS current.
Water is a transparent, tasteless, odorless, and nearly colorless chemical substance that is the main constituent of Earth's streams, lakes, and oceans, and the fluids of most living organisms.
