You have to fire 4 weapons simultaniously before you can see your weapons power decrease. The starter ship and the T2 ships rarely if ever cause your weapons power to dip. When you get into a ship that actually has more than 4 weapons slots then you will have this issue of running out of power for your weapons.

Actually even a T1 ship will draw Weapon power to 90 (at times) when firing a broadside. Base recovery rate is enough for the Weapon power to recovery to full during the firing cycle of 2 energy weapons. When you have 3 or more energy weapons, you start drawing down power faster than it will recovery. That's when you need to have EPS Flow Regulator engineering consoles.
