Best Answer

The base unit of voltage is the volt, a combined unit meaning joules per coulomb.


The SI unit for voltage is the volt (symbol: V), which is a derived unit -not a base unit. There are seven base units in the SI system: metre, kilogram, second, ampere, candela, kelvin, and mole. SI units which are not base units are termed 'derived units'.

What effects voltage per unit?

When doing per unit analysis, voltage and power are normally the independent values, while impedance and current are normally dependent. Check and see what voltage your generator is producing, and follow it through any transformers, converting it accordingly and write it down in each zone. Any time the voltage changes level, you have to recalculate what your per unit current and impedance are. Choose some X amount of power to be constant throughout the entire system. Z = impedance; V = voltage; S = complex power; I = current. (Z base) = (V base)^2 / (S base) (I base) = (V base) / (S base)
