The SI unit of capacitance is Farad, named in honor of the English physicist and chemist Michael Faraday. The unit symbol for the farad is F.
A protective device containing a special wire that melts when excessive current passes through it, thereby opening the circuit.
A selective network of inductors, resistors, and capacitors that offer little opposition to certain frequencies, while attenuating or blocking other frequencies.
The electromotive force induced is proportional to the time rate of change of magnetic ﬂux linked with the circuit.
An iterative technique for solving the nonlinear power ﬂow equations by separately and alternatively solving for the voltage angles and voltage magnitudes.
A physical condition that causes a device, a component, or an element to fail to perform in a required manner, for example, a short circuit, a broken Wire, or an intermittent connection.
The energy stored in the magnetic ﬁeld of an electromagnetic system.
A winding on either the stationary or the rotating part of a machine whose sole purpose is the production of the main electromagnetic ﬁeld of the machine.
The sum of the ﬂuxes linking the turns forming the coil.
Devices that use electrochemical energy to produce a dc voltage.
A number of cycles completed in one second, the unit is Hertz.
