Rated capacity is the capacity of machine or plant. This capacity shows the maximum production power in plant but it can not be achieved due to shortage of time and spending time in rest or other refreshment. So, it is totally theoretical capacity. Sometime it is also called load capacity. One more thing, you should know that every machine have its own rated capacity which will be different from other machine. We can take the example of rated capacity of a pump.
