CHAPTER 4 Electromagnetic Power
The author introduces a new power theory: the theory of electromagnetic power. The term ‘electric power’, used in classical power theory, is too restrictive. Power in circuits is neither wholly electric, nor wholly magnetic; it is related to electricity as well as to magnetism. Power in circuits is an electromagnetic phenomenon; therefore, the author replaces the term ‘electric power’ with the term electromagnetic power.
The ontic part of the theory interprets the concept of electromagnetic power in a way that is similar to the way that quantum electrodynamics interprets the concept of electromagnetic energy-momentum. This interpretation marks a leap from the classical power theory, based on classical ...
