# Which power is product of voltage and current in a circuit calculated without considering the phase shift that may be present between the voltage and current?

I'm not sure there is a term other than "power"; V*A, or the vector sum of real and reactive power is equivalent to the power calculated by multiplying the voltage times the current, ignoring phase shift.

*Answer*

The product of voltage and current in an a.c. circuit is called
'**apparent power**', expressed in volt amperes, in order to
distinguish it from 'true power' (in watts) and 'reactive power'
(in reactive volt amperes).

### What is the difference between over load and over current?

An 'overcurrent' can be an 'overload current' or a 'short-circuit current'. An overload current exists when the load connected to a circuit draws more current than the circuit is designed to carry continuously. A short-circuit current is a high current resulting from a fault between a line conductor and the neutral conductor or earth.

### What is current and voltage in open circuit?

An open circuit may have a voltage dependent on what parts it's made up of but it can't have a current. To get a current there has to be a closed circuit. An open circuit can have a potential difference of any level between any two points- but the current between that two terminals is always zero as this is an open circuit.

### How Voltage is directly proportional to the circuits current?

The question really is which voltage? The source voltage or the voltage across a given circuit due to a specific current input. And, of course, there are many different types of circuits. If you look at a simple circuit with resitance, capacitance and inductance values, you have a circuit impedance that can be calculated. Voltage and current are interrelated by the formula E=IZ where E is the Voltage, I is the current and Z is…

### What is the difference between the inrush current and the fault current?

Magnetizing inrush current has bigger 2nd harmonics compare to short circuit current. the second harmonics content is about >60% of fundamental harmonic. magnetizing inrush current happened when we energised the transformer, and short circuit current happened if there is a short circuit between different alive phase.

### What is the difference between short circuit current and overload current?

Overload currents and short-circuit currents are categories of overcurrent. The difference is the magnitudes of the currents involved. An overload current is a current that exceeds the rated current of the conductors supplying the load, and is due to an excessively-high load. A short-circuit current is very much larger than an overload current, and is the fault current resulting from a low-resistance short circuit between line and neutral conductors.

### How could you calculate the resistance of a circuit?

A variety of techniques can be used. Node-Voltage and Mesh-current (or Loop-current) methods, for example. See related link for examples. If there is a single voltage source in the model, then find the current supplied, and Resistance = Voltage/Current. {R = V/I} You could simulate/ model the circuit on a computer then apply the power profile and a current value will be calculated. Or if you have the circuit working, Place an amp meter into…

### What is the relationship between voltage and current in a circuit if the resistance does not change?

### How is a parrallel circuit different from a series circuit?

A parallel circuit has two elements side by side. In parallel the current is divided between the elements meaning they do not necessarily have the same current. A the elements in a parallel circuit do see the same voltage. In a series circuit both elements see the same current but will have different voltages across them.
