English term or phrase: function of the flue gas flow rate on the plant load
The NOx efficiency is a function of the flue gas flow rate on the plant load. To get an accurate picture of the catalyst performance it should be compared to the plant load.

Skall det vara "of the plant load"?

"of the plant load"

No, if you like to use the word 'of' instead of 'to' you will have to add a few more words to make it read correctly.
You compare things WITH or TO to estimate the similarity of one thing to/with another.
You could say though, 'compared to that of the plant load'.

O gosh I\'m sorry! Well let me still say NO, the sentence reads correctly with the first mentioned \'plant load\'.
When you have a function OF something ON something there is a special mathematical relationship between the two somethings, an expression commonly used in US English.
Glad to see your Spanish seems ok.

Effektiviteten av NOx beror på korrelationen mellan gasflödesfrekvensen i rökkanalen och anläggningens produktion (av gas? utsläpp?).
