Recently to achieve the Exa-flops next generation computer system, the power consumption becomes the important issue. On the other hand, the power consumption character of application program is not so considered now. In this study we examine the power character of our Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) simulation code for the global magnetosphere to evaluate the power consumption behavior of the simulation code under the CPU and DRAM power capping on the parallel computer system. As a result, it is confirmed that there are different power consumption parts in the MHD simulation code, which the execution performance decreases or does not change under the CPU power capping. This indicates the capability of performance optimization with the power capping.
