Power Flow in Electromagnetic Waves The time-dependent power flow density of an electromagnetic wave is given by the instantaneous Poynting vector For time-varying fields it is important to consider the time-average power flow density where T is the period of observation.

Consider time-harmonic fields represented in terms of their phasors The time-dependent Poynting vector can be expressed as the sum of the cross-products of the components

The time-average power flow density can be obtained by integrating the previous result over a period of oscillation T . The pre-factors containing field phasors do not depend on time, therefore we have to solve for the following integrals:

The final result for the time-average power flow density is given by Now, consider the following cross product of phasor vectors

By combining the previous results, one can obtain the following time average rule We also call complex Poynting vector the quantity NOTE: the complex Poynting vector is not
