Low Power <40
High Power >60

Combat Impulse Engines work at peak efficiency under 40 Power
Hyper Impulse Engines work at peak efficiency over 60 Power

The concept of Peak Efficiency means the power to the Engine isn't wasted so 40 power to engines will still be slower than 100, but you'll be going faster at 40 with Combat than Impulse or Hyper-Impulse.

The problem I've run into is I can't get my engine power lower than the mid 40's now while this is great for my Omega set Escort (Hyper Impulse) which pushes 62 to engines with a setting of 35 it sucks for Cruisers with Combat Engines that are getting 46 Power with 25 to Engines.
