Nikola Tesla invented a system at 90 degrees...
It was his first, and, at the time, widely used.
Thats 90 + 270 so it sill equals 360...
And I suspect there is none left.)
>The standard home electrical system in the US is two phase, 180 degree
THAT is a matter of some debate.
Add two 180 degree sines.
Observe result across outer end of home 240.
Check phasing implicit in transformer center tap.
AS VIEWED FROM THE 240, the phasing is zero.
