Should I adjust medium-high heat down when sauteing on my stovetop's power burner?

Here's something I've always wondered but couldn't confirm since I don't have an infrared scanner. Does medium-high heat (or any other setting) on a 10" frypan on one of the stove's "regular" sized gas burners equal about the same amount of heat on a 12" frypan on the stove's largest or "power" burner? Have you found you had to adjust the heat down to compensate at all? Also, apart from the oil smoking, are there any other signs I should be looking out for that tell me whether the heat is too high while sauteing?
