See this link
http://www.acukorea.com/hyfrecator/hyfrecator.htm :

"Coagulation:
The desiccation of tissue via high-frequency generated electrical current using a patient plate, to provide a greater magnitude of tissue necrosis. "

"Patient Plate use:
Monoterminal applications with a dispersive plate improve the coagulation efficiency by providing a better path for the current flow. Its use is indicated when more effective coagulation is desired. The power setting should be reduced when a dispersive plate is used until the surgeon becomes accustomed to the increased coagulation efficiency that the dispersive plate provides."
