Power may be defined as the ability toproduce intended effects. 
Power is the ability to satisfy one'swants through the control of preferences and/or opportunities.
Power is "the processual relation between two parties modallycharacterized by (1) asymmetric influence, in which a perceptibleprobability of decision rests in one of the two parties, even overthe resistance of the other party; and (2) the predominance of negative sanctions (threatened or actual) as a feature of behavior in the dominant party"
Power "is the process of affecting policies of others with the helpof (actual or threatened) severe deprivations for nonconformitywith the policies intended"
Power: "its inner reality, the thing without which it cannot be:that essence is command"
"Power is the ability to cause or prevent change"
So many diverse views of power suggest something pervasive,which like the fabled elephant and the blind men feeling differentparts, manifests itself in many different forms. Which form isapprehended clearly depends on the approach and purpose of astud.
