Flux capacitance is an adjustable, measurable, variable capacity for change.

If something's flux capacitance were to spike, an engineer might reinforce the power conduit coupling as a precaution. (VOY: "Prototype")

This term appears in two otherwise unrelated lines of technobabble from "Prototype", the first spoken by Harry Kim in the first scene: "Flux capacitance is spiking at a measured rate but I don't think that's a problem." The second is B'Elanna Torres': "I'm going to try adjusting the flux capacitance."
The Star Trek Encyclopedia (2nd ed., p. 157) notes that this is a homage to the Back to the Future series of films.
