Hi,

I would like clarification on nomenclature when it comes to report out specs of a generator that goes to a 3-phase system.

If the specs of a generator is reported to have an voltage of 10 kV and a PF of 0.9, is that voltage the line-line voltage or the per phase voltage? I'm thinking phase voltage but not sure.

Also, it is reported to have an output power of 6 MW. Since it says megawatts I am going to assume that this is real power and in RMS, correct? Is this power into the load?

So if I wanted to find the current per phase it would be the power into the load divided by the product of the PF and voltage per phase, correct? Or should I divide the power by 3 first?So if I wanted to find the current per phase it would be the power into the load divided by the product of the PF and voltage per phase, correct?
