Many items need to be considered when measuring power, including input power, inverter efficiency, efficiency, harmonics, and power factor. These measurements involve complicated equations, which is why most companies employ a power analyzer to generate results automatically. A precision high-frequency power analyzer is an important tool for measuring both mechanical and electrical power. Its analysis features and readings can help improve operations and even extend the life of a motor. Selecting the right analyzer and implementing it correctly does require knowledge; however, if employed correctly the power analyzer data will provide accurate and highly valuable data.
