Commonly used terms in the Electrical industry.

direct-axis subtransient reactance
the high-frequency asymptote of the d-axis operational impedance of a synchronous machine. This value characterizes the equivalent reactance of the d axis of the machine during the initial time following a system disturbance. In models in which the rotor windings are represented as lumped parameter circuits, the d-axis subtransient reactance is expressed in closed form as the sum of the stator winding leakage reactance, and the parallel combination of the d-axis magnetizing reactance and the d-axis rotor leakage reactances.
