Chambers 20th Century Dictionary
ō-vėr-lōd′, v.t. to load or fill overmuch.—n. an excessive load.
The Standard Electrical Dictionary
In an electric motor a mechanical load put upon it so great as to prevent economical working. One effect of such a load is to make the armature run so slowly as to unduly reduce the counter-electro-motive force and hence to permit so much current to pass through the coils as to heat them, perhaps injuriously. In this case the production of heat implies the waste of energy.
