Symbol for voltage. Used to represent direct voltage or the effective (root-mean-square) value of an alternating voltage.
Electrical Conductor (electrical grade aluminum - now known as Alloy 1350).
Like concentricity, a measure of the center of a conductor’s location with respect to the circular cross-section of the insulation. Expressed as a percentage of displacement of one circle within the other.
Circulating currents induced in conducting materials by varying magnetic fields.

A rubber or rubber-like material which will stretch repeatedly to 200 percent or more and return rapidly and with force to its approximate original shape.
A conductor through which a current enters or leaves a nonmetallic conductor.
Magnetism caused by the flow of an electric current.
Energy transfer by means of a varying magnetic field.
A rapidly moving electric field and its associated moving magnetic field.
The production of a voltage in a coil due to a change in the number of magnetic lines of force (flux linkages) passing through the coil..
Pressure or voltage. The force which causes current to flow in a circuit.
