|Title||Unpublished paper, 'Contributions to the theory of alternating currents' by W G Rhodes|
|Creator||Rhodes; W G (fl 1898)|
|Description||This paper is divided into two parts: Part I concerns a method of finding the steady values of alternating currents in any circuits or systems of circuits, without having to perform integrations of differential equations 'which may be somewhat complicated'; Part II is devoted to the consideration of the effects of higher harmonics in electromotive forces and currents on the values of the impedances and reactances of circuits.|
