Vary the loads of a simple power system to see how they affect the neutral current. A phase plot and a vector plot provide a visual representation of the effects of the load changes.

You can vary the parameters of each phase of a three-phase load. The results can be viewed in the phase plot as well as a vector plot. The three-phase voltage is also presented as a dashed line for reference purposes. A schematic is also provided for reference.
