  • The shields are always in the red, phasors dont work, and warp speed is down.

  • It is the “real” power power available to do work that is the real component of the resultant phasors, and the reactive power is the imaginary component of the resultant phasors.

  • Almost anyone who has had to work with rotating machinery will immediately understand why phasors do in fact bear a direct physical relationship with the AC circuits being described.

  • You could point out to the students that electrical engineers use complex-plane vectors impedance vectors and rotating phasors in the analysis of AC circuits, even though the engineers know that these vectors bear no direct physical relationship to the AC circuits.

  • Rotating machinery theory this is a senior or graduate level course even explains why the phasors are directly related to the AC response.

  • Since then I have switched to “phasors,” which are vectors that rotate around the origin in the complex plane, because their lack of a direct physical relationship to AC circuits is much more obvious than that of imaginary numbers.

  • If the loads are true 3 phase, then by KCL the phase current phasors will add up to zero and hence no neutral current.

  • The first method shown in Figure 1 maintains a constant torque (all phasors the same length) throughout rotor rotation, by constantly varying the current in both windings.
