    Shouldn't it be 0v and not 240v, because A and B are out of phase?

    Thanks.

    Ah, but voltage is a difference between what you see at two points, so if you plot A - B you will get what they label as AB.

    since B = -A, A - B = A - (-A) = A + A = 2 * A

    Note that this relationship is not as simple in cases where there is three phase power.
