Currents’ Physical Components (CPC) – Based power theory a review part I: Power properties of electrical circuits and systems

Document Type


Publication Date



The CPC-based power theory (PT) of electrical circuits and systems provides an interpretation of the energy transfer-related physical phenomena in such systems and fundamentals for their compensation. It has been developed, step-by-step, with partial results published in Polish, German, English and American journals and in conference proceedings, often not reported on the main databases and consequently, difficult to be found. Its development was a reaction for the lack of progress in long-lasting attempts aimed at explanation of the energy transfer-related physical phenomena and the lack of fundamentals for compensation in electrical systems with nonsinusoidal voltages. This Review provides a draft of the whole CPC concept with references to more detailed results and a concise historical background and critical comments on other power theories.
