National Electrical Manufacturers Association is a group who publishes electrical and medical imaging standards.  

No-Load Condition.

An electric motor operating at rated frequency (AC) and rated voltage with the drive train of its mechanical load disconnected from the rotor driveshaft. The motor turns at near synchronous speed, which introduces maximum CEMF or maximum impedance into the rotor circuit: the motor draws minimum load current from its branch-circuit supply.

NP-FLC.

Acronym for the nameplate full-load current of an electric motor.

NP-RLC.

Acronym for the nameplate rated-load current of an electric motor.
