How does WB Mechanical calculates total deformation for harmonic results?

At a particular frequency and particular phase angle, I get one total deformation result in WB Mechanical. I read the same .rst file in MAPDL and I see the results for the same frequency and phase angle, to my dismay, I observe a different result in MAPDL. For example, for 73.852Hz and 20°, I used SET,,,1,3,73.859,20,, in MAPDL, this seems to not give me the correct result. What commands could I use in MAPDL to match the same results in WB Mechanical?

In MAPDL, we have real and imaginary results for a frequency. But, in WB Mechanical, we have only one result. How are the deformation results calculated in WB Mechanical?
