Am i correct in the above statement and how to arrive at it? Please advise. The 3 phase AC are 3 sine waves with 120 degrees apart.

You can see this geometrically by placing the three vectors tip to tail and noting that they form an equilateral triangle. May 17th, 2018, 12:34 PM   #3

and I guess more importantly that the tail of the final vector is at the tip of the first.

gotcha.

Ok just add them

\begin{align*} &A\sin(\theta) + A\sin(\theta + 120^\circ) + A\sin(\theta+ 240^\circ) =\\ \\ &A\left(\sin(\theta) + \left(\sin(\theta)\cos(120^\circ)+ \cos(\theta)\sin(120^\circ)\right) + \left(\sin(\theta)\cos(240^\circ) + \cos(\theta)\sin(240^\circ)\right) \right)= \\ \\ &A\left(\sin(\theta)-\sin(\theta)\dfrac 1 2 + \cos(\theta)\dfrac{\sqrt{3}}{2} - \sin(\theta)\dfrac 1 2 - \cos(\theta)\dfrac{\sqrt{3}}{2}\right) = \\ &A\left(\sin(\theta) - 2\cdot \dfrac 1 2 \sin(\theta)\right) = \\ \\ &0 \end{align*} Tags phase, resultant, signal, vector Thread Tools Show Printable Version Email this Page Display Modes Linear Mode Switch to Hybrid Mode Switch to Threaded Mode Similar Threads Thread Thread Starter Forum Replies Last Post mrbronz Physics 3 September 25th, 2015 06:21 AM girlbadatmath Physics 9 July 17th, 2014 01:24 AM mt055 Algebra 1 November 3rd, 2009 03:39 PM jokker Algebra 1 June 29th, 2008 03:40 AM question Algebra 2 December 31st, 1969 04:00 PM
