Tech/Engineering - Engineering (general) / Boiler
French term or phrase: en régime
This relates to the combustion control components of a boiler which is part of a cogeneration plant.

I'm unsure as to the meaning of "en régime" at the end of the section quoted below.

"Le réglage du débit d'air (for combusion control) pourra être réalisé soit par un VANE-CONTROL disposé à l'aspiration du ventilateur de soufflage, soit par variation de vitesse du moteur électrique d'entraînement de celui-ci, soit par simple registre.
N.B. Dans la régulation ci-dessus à réponse rapide, la teneur en O2 des fumées pourra agir, en régime, comme correctif."

Is it safe to assume we're talking about steady-state operation (régime permanent) here, or am I barking up the wrong tree?

Thanks for your input.
