The paper presents a new approach to energy indicator determination, such as specific fuel consumption and energy efficiency of the power plant. The essence of the new method is to determine the instantaneous power of the installation with subsequent data processing. The use of this method allows establishing the dependence of specific energy indicators on the generating unit load levels. The established distribution allows defining optimum parameters of experimental setup and consumption at

Experimental data show that fuel without ethanol impurities can generate more electricity, which should be used at higher demand.
