AC Generation

AC Waveform Analysis

What fun can we have with that waveform?

Well, it turns out that there is an awful lot going on in that waveform.  Most of it is actually useful as well.


This video shows all that is happening in the sine wave.

To recap

  • Average (1 alternation) = .639 × peak
  • Instantaneous = sin θ × peak
  • Effective (RMS) = .707 × peak
