Explanation:
Hallo here are some more "words around this theme, which can give you some hints:
I made a google search and found some hits, but not yet a good English word.
The theme here is fish biology but the word "effektkjøring" is explained.

"Vi studerer også de ikke-dødlige (subletale) effektene på fisk av raske vannstandsendringer i elver. Bakgrunnen for dette er vassdragsregulantenes ønske om å manøvrere sine kraftverk på døgnbasis, såkalt effektkjøring. Slik effektkjøring fører bl.a. til tørrlegging av store områder, raske fluktuasjoner i vannstand og vannhastighet og store temperaturfluktuasjoner.

Good luck !
Greetings from Tone

Hydro-peaking


Explanation:
Effektkjøring = hydro peaking. Hydro peaking express that the hydro power plant runs on 100 % power in times with good power prices, and at a minimum flow rate when prices are low. This leads to a fluctuating flow downstreams the power plant, whith various ecological/physical effects
