## Summary

Represents a complex number consisting of the real and imaginary parts.

## Details

Represents a complex value with real and imaginary parts.

C = a + i·b,

where a = Re(C) and b = Im(c).

A pair of a real numbers that are accessible by Re and Im properties defines the complex value.

The complex quantity can also be defined with magnitude and phase values. These are accessible by R and Phi properties.

C = C0ei(ωt + φ),

where C0 is magnitude and φ is a phase value.

In QuickField the complex value is used to represent the harmonic time-dependent physical values, such as current density, voltage and so on. With these quantities you often need to know momentary, root mean square and peak (amplitude) values. There are three read-only properties for such calculations:

• The momentary value of such quantity at the given time t can be obtained by the Momentary property. The time for momentary values (more exactly phase as t*ω) is defined by corresponding FieldWindow.

• The root mean square (or effective) value of the complex quantity is calculated by the RMS property.

• The peak (amplitude) value is returned by the Peak property. For ComplexValue it returns the same value as the R property.
