Explanation: Wow! Power can be translated into so many ways in Japanese that I don't know where to begin. Here are several:
Power as in strength in general:Chikara
The same character is also used as a suffix if you want to be more specific and it is pronounced 'ryoku'. Some examples are Tai-ryoku which is
physical power, Sei-ryoku 勢力 is poweful force，and the word Ken-ryoku
権力 is used in business or politics as it points towards power over something or someone,etc, etc... Last but not least, there is also Den-Gen 電源:
power, as in electricity.
Phew! Hope at least one of them is what you are looking for.
