Understanding AC Power Source Measurement, Part 3: Power Factor and Crest Factor

Written on April 26, 2016 at 7:19 am, by

Programmable AC power sources are primarily used to provide a low distortion, precisely controlled sinusoidal voltage to a unit under test, but some AC sources, such as the California Instruments I-iX Series II, perform measurements as well. Part 1 describes the benefits of using sources for measurement and how to make voltage and current measurements. […]
