Is there a way to flip this \underbrace in the code so that it stays on the same place (under the V but points towards it not away from it as it does right now.

v(t) = Re \{ \underbrace{V}_{V_o e^{j \omega t}} e^{j \phi} \} 

Thank you advance.

Btw, how do you write LaTeX code here directly? Sorry, I am new here.

If you didn't want the understacked material to affect the main equation's spacing, then the stackengine package's \useanchorwidth parameter is helpful.

Here, I stack the embraced commentary under the V, but tell stackengine to use the horizontal size of the V "anchor" to determine the horizontal space allocated for the overall stack. If I set \useanchorwidth to {F}, the answer will look much like the other answers given.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{stackengine}
\renewcommand\useanchorwidth{T}
\stackMath
\begin{document}
$v(t) = Re \{ \stackunder{V}{\overbrace{\scriptstyle V_o e^{j \omega t}}\,} e^{j \phi} \} $
\end{document}

You can also use the original \underbrace as the starting point of your definition:

\documentclass{article}

\begin{document}


\makeatletter
\def\downunderbrace#1{\mathop {\vtop {\m@th \ialign {##\crcr $\hfil \displaystyle {#1}\hfil $\crcr 
\noalign {\kern 3\p@ \nointerlineskip }
%\upbracefill 
\downbracefill 
\crcr \noalign {\kern 3\p@ }}}}\limits}
\makeatother


\[
v(t) = Re \{ \underbrace{V}_{V_o e^{j \omega t}} e^{j \phi} \} 
\]

\[
v(t) = Re \{ \downunderbrace{V}_{V_o e^{j \omega t}} e^{j \phi} \} 
\]

\end{document}

Yes, using abraces:

enter image description here

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{abraces}
\begin{document}
\[ v(t) = Re \{ \underbrace{V}_{V_o e^{j \omega t}} e^{j \phi} \} \]

\[ v(t) = Re \{ \aunderbrace[L1U1R]{V}_{V_o e^{j \omega t}} e^{j \phi} \} \]
\end{document}

L1U1R implies a Left-down end, 1 segment of horizontal fill, an Upward facing cusp, 1 segment of horizontal fill and a Right-down end.
