French term or phrase: puissance appelée
par rapport à une puissance normallement appelée de 4 000 MW XXX doit faire face à des pointes du matin et du soi totalisant 900 MW.

is it just "power demand"? I don't understand how the peaks can be higher than the "puissance normallement appelée" in this case

power demand
Explanation:
think it's referring to a normal power demand, as opposed to morning and evening peak demand

Sorry, I completely missed your second paragraph! Peaks themselves might be 900 MW i.e. over and above normal demand
