Fluke Energy Analyzer AC voltage Measurement

01/05/2022 11:18 PM

I am using Fluke Energy Analyzer Model Number 434-II and I am monitoring the Voltage on the main Bus rated for 600VAC

I see that for every point on the time line there is a Max, Minimum and average,How do I make sense of this and which one I use for comparing to see if the Voltage is fluctuating or stable.

From the graph it is evident that the <...Voltage...>:

  • Is not terribly <...stable...> on a second-by-second basis
  • Is <...stable...> over a 4h period

which is exactly what one might expect as loads come on and drop off, the effects of splurge, etc..

A description of the perceived problem that the equipment is being used to overcome would be helpful to the forum.

You need to look at the current to see if the load is moving the voltage or if the variation comes from the source. You use the high resolution data to find that out. You don’t say what the sample time period is, so it is difficult to know if you are looking at harmonic distortion or variation at system frequency. As asked by PWSlack, why you are looking at this would be helpful for targeted guidance.
