Power and power factor

The sampled measurements taken at the meter’s voltage and current inputs provide data for calculating power and power factor.

In a balanced 3-phase alternating current (AC) power system source, the AC voltage waveforms on the current-carrying conductors are equal but offset by one-third of a period (a phase angle shift of 120 degrees between the three voltage waveforms).
