Sinusoids and Phasors
<emphasis role="bold">Sinusoids</emphasis> Sinusoids are fundamental in power systems. After the invention of the transformer in 1885 and the induction motor in 1888 by Ferraris and Tesla, a.c. systems were preferred to d.c. systems. Sinusoids were chosen both due to their relatively simple generation and due to a well-established mathematical theory to analyze them. In this appendix, we will provide the basic concepts of sinusoids and phasors, as they apply to the previous chapters. Sinusoids are periodic signals that have the form of a sine, or…
