# What does following statement mean: “ Simulation was done at the rate of 12 samples per cycle of 50Hz a.c.”

I am very new to the signal processing world and i am currently doing a project of studying frequency components in electrical machines. I am simulating the system in PSCAD. But i need to simulate the model at the rate of 12 samples per cycle of 50 Hz. What does that statement mean? TIA

So one period of 50Hz sinuoisd is 0.02s and in that 1 period you are collecting 12 samples, Therefore rate of sampling is $$12*50$$, 600Hz.
