    Abstract

    Power analyzer specify their power measurement accuracy typically for sinusoidal signals only. In inverter applications, however, signals result from a switching operation and are therefore broadband. This article presents a method for providing a reference result for AC power measurements between inverter and motor. The reference power is determined by a combination of DC measurements and calorimetry and therefore it is independent of the AC signal’s waveform.
