ROOT MEAN SQUARE (RMS)

A method of adding up AC sinusoidal waveforms so that the summed value equals the equivalent DC value. The rms value of current for a system containing numerous different harmonic currents is obtained by squaring the value of each harmonic current, summing the squares, and then taking the square root of the sum. This rms value of current if passed through a resistor, would produce the same amount of power as if a DC current of the same value were passed through the resistor.
