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.
