"Charles Proteus Steinmetz's original math model is a natural outgrowth of Nikola Tesla's polyphase power systems. Tesla was the discoverer, but Steinmetz was the builder who first applied Versor Algebra to the analysis of alternating current power systems.
In my presentation and book FOUR QUADRANT REPRESENTATION OF ELECTRICITY,
my extension of Steinmetz's work is presented in the most simple way possible using very simple analogies, pictures and diagrams. It was a very difficult task as the goal was to facilitate an understanding for the layman.
Versor Algebra as Applied to Polyphase Power Systems is the next logical step after Four Quandrant Representation of Electricity as it takes the reader into the mathematical journey of the mathematical model and theory that is necessary to realize the unique electrical waves that exist in polyphase power systems. These waves are actually beyond the original understanding of Tesla and Steinmetz with regard to polyphase power systems.
It is important to understand that this is all possible with simple 9th grade algebra. I take the reader through a step-by-step process from very basic algebra and logarythms into the more complex subject. The process involves very simple but numerous steps to guide the reader into the understanding of polyphase mathematics.
Through my own journey in writing this Versor Algebra book, I have been able to unify the polyphonic music of Bach and his contemporaries as this music follows the logic of sequence algebra perfectly."
