  In focus - Power chords - - Music Seek
Specifically, the term refers to the powerful and distinct sonic effect caused by the combination of two pitch classes separated by the interval of a perfect fifth (or its inversion, a perfect fourth) when subjected to a degree of distortion, usually through adequate amplification or other electronic processing, (e.g., a fuzz box).
Since power chords lack a third, they are ambiguous as to mode: they are neither major or minor.
Power chords, however, are not composed of independent parts that happen to coincide.

 An Introduction To Chords
A major chord consists of a 'root' (the note on which the chord is based, usually also the lowest note of the chord), the note a 'major third' (four half-steps) higher than the root, and the note a 'minor third' (three half- steps) higher than the second note.
This "seventh chord as the dominant of a scale" is known as a "dominant seventh" or "major-minor seventh", and the term "seventh chord", if not modified somehow, almost always refers to this chord.
Chords with extra notes added to them and suspended chords / power chords, along with inversions of simple chords, are less common but by no means rare.

 Stereophile: Chord SPM 14000 Ultimate monoblock power amplifier
The Chord power supply was introduced to the public in 1989's Chord SPM900 stereo amplifier.
Chord claims that "clipping is virtually impossible" with the SPM 14000 and states that the output signal path is totally free of the fuses or sound-degrading resistive components often used to sense overload.
This is achieved by relying "on a magnetic flux being generated between the power rails." The amplifier self-monitors differences in the flux density between the rails over time and uses an algorithm to determine whether or not power should be delivered or withheld.
