Abstract

Today, electric power and energy measurements are widely required, practically in all the research, industrial and consumer applications. Power measurements are of importance primarily for the test, monitoring and maintenance of energy supply networks and electric equipment. The measurement of both electric power and energy is a still open research problem in the electrical engineering community. Phenomena like harmonic distortion, noise, transients, over-voltages and voltage dips have increased the difficulty in achieving accurate measurements, compared with the case of sinusoidal signals. Many of the non-Active power component definitions that have been proposed cannot be implemented in the traditional electro-mechanical or solid-state meters, but require the adoption of more expensive and time-consuming digital techniques; recently, some new approaches for the definition of power quantities have been investigated. In this paper, a survey of the classical and innovative definitions is proposed, with the aim of summarize the different points of view outlined by the researchers. A case study of power factor correction in nonsinusoidal conditions is also presented, to give a numerical comparison about the power quantities measured according to the various approaches.
