- The power generated by a random electromagnetic process.
- Interfering and unwanted power in an electrical device or system.
- In the acceptance testing of radio transmitters, the mean power supplied to the antenna transmission line by a radio transmitter when loaded with noise having a Gaussian amplitude-vs.-frequency distribution.
