Is there a way to use plot phasors of voltages and currents (complex numbers in rectangular or polar form)? I would like to do this without creating custom functions, if possible.
Solved! Go to Solution.
What kind of phasor plot do you have in mind. Plotting just the point or a line segment from he origin is easy, if you need an arrow it would mean a litle bit more work and you would be better off with a custom function.
You have the (built-in, so no custom function is required) functions Re() and Im() that take the real and imaginary part of a complex number. You can plot those on a rectangular plot.
Then you also have the built-in functions arg() and | | to get phase and magnitude of a complex number that you can plot on a Polar plot.

Success!

Thank you for the quick response. Line segment works for me.
HI
This is a file done by T Gutman that I use. I downloaded it from this forum a while back.
Here is also a version for Mathcad Prime.
