tutorial for processor power management?

hi all is there a tutorial for processor power management in the power options? my interest is mainly system cooling policy and the correct definitions

passive cooling policy (it slows down the processor before increasing fan speed) or an active cooling policy (it increases the fan speed before slowing down the processor).
