I would create a flat-line performance curve that consumes 100% energy consumption at all load conditions. I would not run flat line all the way to 0% load however. Determine what your minimum running capacity is and drop it off to 0 at that point. The example below could be used for HGBP with a min. capacity at 5%. I'm not sure what's the typical minimum.
