The purpose of this paper is to explain an exact derivation of apparent power in n-sinusoidal operation founded on electromagnetic theory, until now unexplained by simple mathematical models. The aim is to explore a new tool for a rigorous mathematical and physical analysis of the power equation from the Poynting Vector (PV) concept. A powerful mathematical structure is necessary and Geometric Algebra offers such a characteristic. In this sense, PV has been reformulated from a new Multivectorial Euclidean Vector Space structure (CGn-R) to obtain a Generalized Poynting Multivector (S̃). Consequently, from S̃, a suitable multivectorial form (P̃ and D̃) of the Poynting Vector corresponds to each component of apparent power. In particular, this framework is essential for the clarification of the connection between a Complementary Poynting Multivector (D̃) and the power contribution due to cross-frequency products. A simple application example is presented as an illustration of the proposed power multivector analysis. Corresponding author: M. Castilla (castilla@us.es).
