Explanation: Ernst, WB der indust. Technik suggests working point or heading. For electronics he suggests "operating point" which I actually prefer for the above (it scans better), but I am not one to argue with Master Ernst. ; ) HTH and good luck, Will

Explanation: As an ex-engineer I can say quite positively that you've chosen well. "Operating point" is a generic term used for any device having a characteristic relating two quantities, whether an electronic device (e.g. current v. voltage) or a mechanical (e.g. fluid flow v. speed).
