apparent power
product of the rms voltage U between the terminals of a two-terminal element or two-terminal circuit and the rms electric current I in the element or circuit

S = UI

Note 1 to entry: Under sinusoidal conditions, the apparent power is the modulus of the complex power S _ MathType@MTEF@5@5@+= feaagKart1ev2aqatCvAUfeBSjuyZL2yd9gzLbvyNv2CaerbbjxAHX garuavP1wzZbItLDhis9wBH5garmWu51MyVXgaruWqVvNCPvMCG4uz 3bqee0evGueE0jxyaibaieYdi9WrpeeC0lXdi9qqqj=hEeeu0lXdbb a9frFj0xb9Lqpepeea0xd9s8qiYRWxGi6xij=hbba9q8aq0=yq=He9 q8qiLsFr0=vr0=vr0db8meaabaGacmGadiWaaiWabaabaiaafaaake aadaadaaqaaiaadofaaaaaaa@3A75@ , thus S=| S _ | MathType@MTEF@5@5@+= feaagKart1ev2aqatCvAUfeBSjuyZL2yd9gzLbvyNv2CaerbbjxAHX garuavP1wzZbItLDhis9wBH5garmWu51MyVXgaruWqVvNCPvMCG4uz 3bqee0evGueE0jxyaibaieYdi9WrpeeC0lXdi9qqqj=hEeeu0lXdbb a9frFj0xb9Lqpepeea0xd9s8qiYRWxGi6xij=hbba9q8aq0=yq=He9 q8qiLsFr0=vr0=vr0db8meaabaGacmGadiWaaiWabaabaiaafaaake aacaWGtbGaeyypa0ZaaqWaaeaadaadaaqaaiaadofaaaaacaGLhWUa ayjcSdaaaa@3F75@ .
