Well, I'm a Chartered Electrical Engineer, living and working in UK, and

although your detailed explanation is correct, that IS the description

of a two-phase system.

Just as the phase angles between the conductors of a 3-phase system are

120 degrees, so that the three angles add to 360 degrees, the angles

between the phases of a 2-phase system are 180 degrees, adding up to 360

degrees.

That is just so wrong.

Maybe you could explain?
