The term “control” is also used to describe the numerical arrangement of the channels or dimmers that regulate instrument intensity. When a light plot is constructed, the lighting designer decides which instruments will operate together, which separately, and how they will numerically relate to each other. Their arrangement is documented in a form called a hookup. The word “hookup” is an anachronism carried over from the days of manual road boards. The physical action of plugging cables into the ­dimmers meant the cables were being “hooked up” or “patched” to the dimmer boards.

19 The power formula (or the “West Virginia” f­ ormula) is based on the three related attributes of electricity: amperage, wattage, and voltage. The formula, usually displayed in three variations, shows the relationship between these three attributes: W = V × A Wattage equals voltage multiplied by amperage. This arrangement is how the formula is often memorized (W. Va). W V W V= A Amperage equals wattage divided by voltage. A= Voltage equals wattage divided by amperage. If two of the factors are known, the third attribute can be determined by using these formulas.
