loss current

loss current

[′lȯs ‚kə·rənt]
(electricity)
The current which passes through a capacitor as a result of the conductivity of the dielectric and results in power loss in the capacitor.
(electromagnetism)
The component of the current across an inductor which is in phase with the voltage (in phasor notation) and is associated with power losses in the inductor.

Suppose the electrical phase angle between the primary voltage and the primary current is [theta]; then, [I.sub.1] cos [theta] is the core loss current and [I.sub.1] sin [theta] serves as the excitation current.
