Nagorak has done a lot of testing in weapon firing and damage based on different loads. He has a program which will show your DPS vor various loads and skills. The thread is stickied on this section.

The bottom line is that adding more weapons does more DPS, but it's more linear. You have a diminishing damage curve based on the extra power drain. IIRC the sweet spot seems to be 6 beam weapons. I thin cannons are similar. You will do more damage with 7 or 8 energy weapons, But the DPS curve really flattens out after 6 energy weapons. Any explore Nargoraks thread. I lot of good info if you are a mini-max'er type.
