I had 3 coal generators overclocked to 250% and had a grid capacity just over 300MW. I switched into 6 generators while transitioning to oil and overclocked them all 200% however my grid capacity says only 256 MW.

I noticed a thing in the generator UI that says efficiency. Does the modifier of efficiency apply to the displayed capacity or just production and usage?

By my math if each coal generator is set to 200% and I have 6 of them and the default power rating is 50MW I should have 600MW not 256. Any help here?

I guess u didnt connect all Powergenerators to the Power circuit. Maybe deleted a cable? Check that

So you are probably right that I'm not getting the 60o because I probably have 2 non connected grids atm. I hooked the 6 up at two poles 3 each. However shouldn't I still be getting 300MW not 256? It seems I often get these wierd numbers during power generation.

not sure about that, maybe resetup your powershards. maybe one isnt  propper set to 200%.

they are definitely all correctly set up. I'm almost certain there is something to do with "efficiency" and my generators are being smart enough to not use their entire potential while under and small load

I realized the same thing. Somehow overclock values are wrong.
