Part of the Power Electronics and Power Systems book series (PEPS)


Phase angles of voltage phasors of power network buses have always been of special interest to power system engineers. It is well known that active (real) power flow in a power line is very nearly proportional to the sine of the angle difference between voltages at the two terminals of the line.
