1. A system comprising:
a power controller to:
calculate an error between a predefined maximum desired power and a power feedback signal associated with a server;
provide a power capping signal based on the calculated error, the power capping signal characterizing a limit of power consumption of the server; and
a management interface to adjust a control percentage associated with the power capping signal to calculate a difference in the power feedback signal between the control percentage set at a predetermined maximum and set at a predetermined minimum.
