Understanding Power Flow and Naming Conventions In Bi-directional Metering Applications

Published by Michael Bearden Introduction In 1982 Raymond “Ray” Stevens published a paper “Power Flow Direction Definitions for Metering of Bi-directional Power”. This paper helped reduce the confusion in the terminology associated with the naming of power quantities based on the direction of active and reactive power flow. The paper did not address leading andContinue reading “Understanding Power Flow and Naming Conventions In Bi-directional Metering Applications”
