Commonly used terms in the Electrical industry.

a unit of frequency.
terahertz (THz)
a frequency unit, 1012 hertz.
volts/hertz control
a method of speed control of induction machines, used below rated speed. When the volts/hertz ratio is kept constant, the current through the stator windings remains almost the same, except for very low speeds; hence, the available torque remains constant, but the speed changes due to change in frequency.
