To realize microwave power traceability, we apply a newly developed calibration technique for measuring the correction factor of a calorimeter with a vector network analyzer in the WR-15 frequency band. The wave-parameter approach is used to formulate analytic expressions for the correction-factor and effective-efficiency. This allows us to systematically track the uncertainty with correlation along an unbroken path. Measurement results are consistent with what was previously obtained by use of the conventional method.
