Abstract:Today, no relatively cheap AC load exists which can purely arbitrarily draw current from an AC voltage source. A few exist on the market which, in general, are expensive and limited in the way current can be drawn. The need for this custom testing device, which needs to imitate waveforms from one or multiple appliances, arose to test static energy meters for measurement errors without swapping cables and devices. Additional waveforms can be generated to further test static meters, which enables the cause of error to be found more easily. The goal of this paper is to design a testing device on a conceptual level which meets these requirements. Simulations with actual waveforms are used to optimize and verify the conceptual design. Lastly, recommendations for the the physical design are given.
