High Voltage AC Power2 explains basic AC power theory. Covers the relationships between various types of power, and the functions of transformers, voltage regulators, and capacitors in a distribution system. Defines apparent power, true power, reactive power, and power factor, and explains the meaning of each term in the context of three-phase AC distribution systems. Explains how delta and wye configurations affect voltage and current, and how voltage regulators and capacitors are used to affect the power factor in three-phase distribution systems.
