Dictionary of Electrical Engineering

Commonly used terms in the Electrical industry.

RL
Typical symbol for load resistance.
RS
commonly used symbol for source impedance.
RT
commonly used symbol for transformation ratio.
raceway
a channel within a building which holds bare or insulated conductors.
radial intensity histogram
a histogram of average intensities for a round object in circular bands centered at the center of the object, with radial distance as the running index. Such histograms are easily constructed, and, suitably normalised, form the basis for scrutinizing round objects for defects, and for measuring radius and radial distances of cylindrically symmetrical features.
radial system
a network of straight wires or other conductors radiating from the base of a vertical monopole antenna that simulates the presence of a highly conducting ground plane beneath the antenna. Typically, radial wires are approximately a quarter wavelength long and are arranged to have equiangular spacing between them. The radial wire ends at the base of the monopole are electrically bonded together and to one conductor of the feedline.
rare-earth magnet
a magnet that has any of the rare-earth elements in its composition. Typically stronger than other magnet materials, these include neodymium iron boron and samarium cobalt.
rare-earth permanent magnet
magnet made of compounds of iron, nickel, and cobalt with one or more of the rare-earth elements such as samarium. These materials combine the high residual flux density of the alnico-type materials with greater coercivity than ferrites.
rated voltage
the voltage at which a power line or electrical equipment is designed to operate.
reactance grounded
an electrical system in which the neutral is intentionally grounded through a reactance. Frequently used in the neutral of generators and transformers to limit the magnitude of line to ground fault currents.
