Amplitude in alternating current - effective value (RMS)

Amplitude in alternating current - effective value (RMS)

Reading time: 6 minute The amplitude of a waveform in alternating current is practically a value that is calculated on the graph, depending on the time and height of the signal. For alternating current signals we have several types of amplitude calculations such as: peak value, peak to peak amplitude, average amplitude, effective value (RMS).

The basics of alternating current theory

The basics of alternating current theory

Reading time: 5 minute In alternating current, voltage and current change their polarity; the direct current maintains the voltage and the current at a polarity, respectively a constant direction in time; Alternating current electromechanical generators, known as alternators, are much easier to build than direct current generators. The same is true for electric motors.
