Power grid or power transfer grid was an informal term for a system that sent energy throughout a starship, facility or even a planet. These grids could make use of electricity, electro-plasma or any number of energy sources. The Federation made use of a power grid known as the EPS, the primary energy distribution system on their ships and stations.
In 2152, Jonathan Archer reluctantly shut down the power grid aboard Enterprise NX-01 in preparation for an approaching neutronic wavefront. T'Pol assured him it was necessary in order to prevent a possible overload. (ENT: "The Catwalk")
In 2371, Lieutenant Joseph Carey came into conflict with B'Elanna Torres in engineering over the USS Voyager's power grid. Torres wanted to realign the lateral plasma conduit, which Carey told her would cause an overload in the power grid. (VOY: "Parallax")
In 2371, a Changeling impersonating Julian Bashir claimed as Bashir to be connecting a diagnostic console to the medical bay's power grid aboard the USS Defiant when confronted by O'Brien. (DS9: "The Adversary")
In 2372, Stevens and Muniz routed the output of the Defiant's phaser generator through the ship's secondary power grid. This was done in order to use the deflector array as a phaser emitter. (DS9: "Starship Down")
In an alternate timeline in 2374, a Krenim attack destroyed Voyager's power grid on Deck 11. Over two months later it was operating at thirty-two per cent efficiency, with Harry Kim predicting this could be increased to fifty per cent within a few days. (VOY: "Year of Hell", "Year of Hell, Part II")
Not long after, Seven of Nine expressed concern that damage to the power grid from combat with Allos' species could overload the harmonic resonance chamber in cargo bay 2. (VOY: "The Omega Directive")
