There are two videos here in this series on your electric power meter.
This is a little understood subject where people voice there opinions but lack any credible proof to back up what they say.
I did the exhaustive testing to provide you with the right information.
For some reason I broke the video into two parts.
I show the formula to read your old style electric meter (spin type) and I also tested the new digital ones to see if they picked up more of the reactive power and they don’t.
To make the testing exhaustive and complete I even ran converters through transformers to show how that might effect the electric you pay for. It doesn’t.
And I even ran things through the wrong transformers which any electrician would scream about. This way you know what you can get away with.
Fun and interesting stuff.
