A comparative study of the measurement capabilities of solid state watthour meters and other commercially available measurement instruments was performed. This study included the use of both theoretically developed harmonically distorted test signals and 'real world' waveforms. Results indicate a general agreement between observed measured data and calculated values except when the test signals contained a high current crest factor.
