Example text

When reversing the direction of a vector (equivalent to reversing the polarity of an AC voltage source in relation to other voltage sources), it can be expressed in either of two different ways: adding 180o to the angle, or reversing the sign of the magnitude. • Meter measurements in an AC circuit correspond to the polar magnitudes of calculated values. Rectangular expressions of complex quantities in an AC circuit have no direct, empirical equivalent, although they are convenient for performing addition and subtraction, as Kirchhoff’s Voltage and Current Laws require.

7. MORE ON AC ”POLARITY” 43 In AC circuits, though, we don’t deal with ”negative” quantities of voltage. Instead, we describe to what degree one voltage aids or opposes another by phase: the time-shift between two waveforms. We never describe an AC voltage as being negative in sign, because the facility of polar notation allows for vectors pointing in an opposite direction. If one AC voltage directly opposes another AC voltage, we simply say that one is 180o out of phase with the other. Still, voltage is relative between two points, and we have a choice in how we might connect a voltage-measuring instrument between those two points.

Polar form is where a complex number is denoted by the length (otherwise known as the magnitude, absolute value, or modulus) and the angle of its vector (usually denoted by an angle symbol that looks like this: ). ” Here are two examples of vectors and their polar notations: 36 CHAPTER 2. 81o) Standard orientation for vector angles in AC circuit calculations defines 0 o as being to the right (horizontal), making 90o straight up, 180o to the left, and 270o straight down. Please note that vectors angled ”down” can have angles represented in polar form as positive numbers in excess of 180, or negative numbers less than 180.
