The effect of the addition of CR to TLA on the phase angle resulted in an increase in the viscosity of the material (higher phase angle) with the addition of 2% CR and further addition of CR resulted in a decrease of the viscoelastic response (lower phase angle).
The selected solar phase angle coefficients (in magnitudes/degree) are: 0.
Torque and phase angle are recorded as a function of the test time.
This lets the DSC set the phase angle for each interleaved power stage during initialization of the converter.
The 1715 measures, displays, and outputs the results of two parameters at a time including capacitance, AC resistance, series or parallel, inductance dissipation factor, quality factor, impedance, phase angle, and reactance.
SP2100 temperature controller features "soft pulse" technology for precise continuous flow of power without the on-again/ off-again bursts of phase angle firing, thereby reducing stress on heating elements and providing more precise temperature control.
In this paper, the measurement of admittance and the phase angle was performed to suggest the experimental evidence for identifying such phenomena as percolation, PTC, and NTC.

The results obtained as part of a DMA experiment include the storage or elastic modulus (E'), the loss or viscous modulus (E"), and the tangent of the phase angle delta or tan delta (E"/E').
Bioelectrical impedance analyzer derived phase angle is a cheap, noninvasive, easy, and reproducible method with minimal intra- and inter-observer variability [5] to assess malignancy by measuring altered tissue electrical properties.
With AC source, with class F commutation or natural commutation, the Thyristors in general or the SCRs in particular could be switched on at any desired phase angle and the turning off of the SCR could not be controlled and it happened automatically at the zero crossing of the AC source.
