 Spanish term or phrase: Circuitos sin neutro The chapter is "Modelización del receptor" and the article is about three-phase electrical systems with unbalanced voltages. The sentence I'm having trouble with is: "Para los circuitos desequilibrados, lineales, sin neutro (a tres hilos), la potencia instantánea se expresa como..." Unbalanced, linear and ??? circuits. Any suggestions? Thanks! Desmond

 without a neutral point Explanation:you could also say: with no neutral point. I was just wondering if you've included the commas in the right place because if there is a comma after "lineales" then it means that there are three circuits and one of them has no neutral point. If there isn't a comma after "lineales" then it means that neither the "desequilibrados nor the lineales" have a neutral point. :)

 Yes, you´re probably right. The author uses commas all over the place and that´s what confused me. Thanks for clarifying it for me. All the best DESMOND4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
