E

EFFICIENCY

The ratio of output-signal power compared to the total input power, generally expressed as a percentage [1] [7].


ELASTICITY

The ability of a substance to return to its original state [10].

ELECTRIC (E) FIELD

The field of force that is produced as a result of a voltage charge on a conductor or antenna [10] [11].


ELECTRIC CURRENT

The flow of electrons [1].

ELECTRICAL CHARGE

Symbol Q, q. Electric energy stored on or in an object. The negative charge is
caused by an excess of electrons; the positive charge is caused by a deficiency of electrons [1].


ELECTRICAL CHEMICAL

The action of converting chemical energy into electrical energy [1].

ELECTRICAL POWER SYSTEM

Provides the necessary input power [18].

ELECTRICAL SYMBOLS

Graphic symbols used to illustrate the various electrical or electronic
components of a circuit [4].


ELECTRICAL ZERO

A standard synchro position, with a definite set of stator voltages, that is used as the reference point for alignment of all synchro units [15].


ELECTRICAL-LOCK

A synchro zeroing method. This method is used only when the rotors of the
synchros to be zeroed are free to turn and their leads are accessible [15].
