There are select junctions at specific areas where you can use Overcharge. The amount of power required is marked by large numbers on the item so you will know how much power is required to power that system.

How to increase Overcharge power?

You need to collect enough Techscrap and go to the MedBay. Interact with the medical chair there and funnel your Techscrap into the power core. This increases your power core level and it will also increase the amount of overcharge power you have in your suit. If you don’t have enough Overcharge power to power a system, no need to worry. You can increase your core level and return to the same area and then power it.
