Abstract

An International Comparison of 50/60 Hz Power is described. The traveling standard was an electronic power transducer which was tested at 120 volts, 5 amperes, 53 hertz, at five power factors (1.0, 0.5 lead, 0.5 lag, 0.0 lead, and 0.0 lag). Fifteen national metrology institutes from six metrology regions participated the comparison.
