Robust Power.

There is a form of “robustness” inherent in AC power generated by rotating electro-magnetic fields (spinning generators). Those magnetic fields are a form of very short-term power storage that can fluctuate in reaction to changing loads. This is one form of reactive power or VAR (Volts-Amps-Reactive). VAR provides a level of stability to the power and adds a component of muscle to the power which enhances its transportability across distances.
