Measuring true power is more than multiplying voltage and current. Advances in complex power electronics and energy efficiency create measurement challenges that can confound even the most experienced engineers.
Unlike data acquisition and oscilloscope-based power measurement tools, power analyzers are purpose-built to guarantee measurement accuracy when testing devices that generate, transform, or consume electricity.
Yokogawa, the world's leading supplier of electrical power analyzers, provides solutions for testing power electronics, inverters, motors and drives, lighting, home appliances, office equipment, power supplies, industrial machinery and more.

In this application note you will learn when and how to use different methods to connect a current transformer to a power analyzer.
Energy consumption in low-power and standby modes is an important issue due to increased awareness that energy resources are becoming limited and demand for energy-saving household electrical appliances continues to grow. IEC62301 Ed2.0 (2011) and EN 50564:2011 define standby mode as the lowest energy consumption of an appliance not performing its main function, when connected to the mains. IEC62301 Ed2.0 (2011) defines test methods and requirements for both the mains supply and the test equipment. It is crucial that design and test engineers choose highly accurate power measurement tools to confirm that their devices meet these requirements.
We have developed the WT3000 Precision Power Analyzer, which features the world's highest measurement accuracy of ±0.02% of reading and a measurement bandwidth of 0.1 Hz to 1 MHz as well as DC signals.
Government agencies that define the standardization of energy efficiency metrics continue to be a driving force behind the development of the next generation electric vehicle powertrains. These metrics require manufacturers to have high confidence in their measurements and motivate the optimization of efficiency.
Yokogawa developed the PX8000 precision power scope, a high-accuracy power meter, which can measure reactor losses in inverters, motors and the like, by analyzing waveforms. The major specifications of the instrument are as follows: basic accuracy is 0.2%, voltage measurement bandwidth is DC and 0.1 Hz to 20 MHz (-3dB, typical), and current measurement bandwidth is DC and 0.1 Hz to 10 MHz (-3dB, typical). The PX8000 offers the functionality usually provided by a waveform measuring instrument, such as a variety of triggers, tracking, statistical processing, and waveform parameter calculation functions. Furthermore, to improve measurement accuracy at low power ratios this product comes with a de-skew function for correcting signal delays from the current sensor and a data latency adjustment function. This paper describes the PX8000, focusing on a newly developed element dedicated for power measurement and technology for phase correction.
This white paper describes the WT1800, a precision power analyzer that has been replaced by the WT1800E, a unit with numerous improvements including better accuracy. Please visit the WT1800E product page to learn more about the WT1800E.
To keep pace with the increasing speed of switching devices in inverters, Yokogawa has developed the WT1800 precision power analyzer with 10 times faster sampling speed and 5 times wider frequency bandwidth compared with previous models. Its basic accuracy is 0.15% and the frequency bandwidth of voltage and current is 0.1 Hz to 5 MHz (-3 dB, Typical) including the DC component. With up to six inputs, a single WT1800 unit can measure the efficiency of three-phase inverters. In addition, the high-speed data capturing mode allows the WT1800 to measure transient power. This paper describes the high-speed, real-time power measurement technologies underlying these functions.
We have added a harmonics current/flicker measuring function to the WT3000 Precision Power Analyzer with world-leading accuracy of power measurement. We have also created PC software for harmonics current/flicker measurement. This PC software and the WT3000 comply with the IEC61000- 3-2 harmonics current standard and IEC61000-3-3 voltage fluctuation/flicker standard, thus enabling the electrical power, harmonics current and flicker of electrical equipment to be measured precisely with a single unit. This paper outlines the harmonics current standard and voltage change/flicker standard, along with the measurement principle and PC-based software of the WT3000.
In recent years, there has been an increased emphasis on energy efficiency in industrial systems, resulting in more penetration of power electronics in equipment such as inverters and motor drives.

The new current sensor element replaces the traditional current inputs and includes a sensor input terminal with integrated ±15V power supply, eliminating the need for an external power supply. The isolated voltage terminals remain the same as the 5A and 30A elements.
This video demonstrates how to measure transient phenomena on power signals using the Yokogawa Test&Measurement PX8000 Precision Power Scope.
In several applications, especially those testing AC power to a standard such as IEC61000-3-11, the voltage and current signals must be monitored to confirm there are no major dips and/or swells in the signal. This can be done with instruments capable of reporting rms values, including power analyzers, traditional oscilloscopes, and some data acquisition systems.
To test to a standard, however, the instrument must have an accuracy spec that is traceable back to a national standard of calibration such as ISO17025 or NIST.
This video demonstrates how to test to an IEC standard (IEC 61000) using a Yokogawa Test&Measurement WT5000 Precision Power Analyzer and the harmonic flicker testing software. The software automates the process of judging if the device under test is compliant with the chosen standard and allows you to output the necessary test reports for your records.
