Term Main definition
Power Limit Token

A power limit token throttles the supply. If a consumer is limited to a supply of 1kW then an average of 1000 watts over a few minutes will be allowed. Exceeding the limit causes the meter to disconnect the consumer supply for a few minutes, after which the supply is reconnected. This cycle will repeat until the load is reduced to within the limit.
