 Spanish term or phrase: Impedancias con doble comilla Hopefully this will be last query re. the text!! On the subject of three-phase three-wire linear systems, the sentence reads: "Las impedancias con doble comilla dependen del grado de desequilibrio y representan a potencias producidas por el efecto de las tensiones en secuencia." I'm not sure how we render "doble comilla". The impedances are written Z'', so I'm tempted to put "double comma", but maybe there's a specific term for this... Any suggestions? Thanks once again to all of you. DESMOND

"impedances"

Explanation:
I believe the "doble comilla" is quote and unquote, which could mean that the author does not agree with the use given to that word.
But you may want to wait for another answer.
