Active Power

In an AC circuit, the active power is the average of the integral of the instantaneous power that is emitted or consumed by the load in one cycle (or the power consumed by the load resistor). Therefore, it is also called the average power.

P = U*I*cosφ = S*cosφ
P = Active power
S = Apparent power
