This part of IEC 60027 is applicable to generation, transmission, and distribution of electric energy. It gives names and letter symbols for quantities and units. In addition, rules for multiple subscripts and their succession are given. This part of IEC 60027 is an addition to IEC 60027-1. Therefore letter symbols already given in IEC 60027-1 are repeated only if they have a special meaning in the field of power generation, transmission, and distribution or if they are used in this field with special subscripts. Guidance on the use of capital and lower case letters, is given in IEC 60027-1, 2.1, and guidance on the representation of complex quantities,is given in IEC 60027-1, 1.6. Therefore in many cases only U is given instead of U, U U = or u.
