### Can AC harmonic quantities be expressed as a sum of phasors of different frequencies without confusion?

https://www.electronics-tutorials.ws/accircuits/harmonics.html The problem with AC harmonics is that each term has a different frequency, being a integer factor of the first frequency. I was wondering ...

### Usually AC quantities have the x-axis as time, but phase shifts are done in angles. How is there not a unit conflict?

This feels like a very specific and stupid question, but I have studied AC circuits for a while already. I just didn't think about it that much, but why is it established that the x-axis we use for ...

### What is the importance of peak factor and form factor?

I get that form factor and peak factor are suppose to be ratios involving the RMS, maximum and average values of current or voltage for AC circuits, but I don't get specifically why those ratios are ...

### Driving multiwinding current transformer

About the circuit below: I'm using a Current Transformer with two identical secondary windings, L1 and L2. I can use them indistinctively since they are 1:1. The relationship with the primary is 1000:...

### Can FOC be done with only one PID controller and a lookup-table that determines phase-offset?

Normally two PIDs are used to do torque-control with FOC -- one for the direct torque and one for quadrature torque. The reason for this is described here: Why are two PID controllers needed for FOC (...

### How do I proceed when the current is Io = 2cos (wt)?

I have this problem: And I would like some help with how to proceed. My own thinking: I think Io = 2cos (wt) mA should be 2 mA. For VR (t) I think it should be VR (t) = 2 mA * 1000 = 2 V and for ...
