These articles address specific measurements problems and interesting phenomena.
TL igniting phenomena and strange starter behaviour
It all began with a power measurement on an igniting tube light. A part of this ingniting procedure looked strange and could not be interpret. This let to the discovery that light radioactive materials are being used in TL-starters.
Measuring PC power consumption
Measuring the power consumption of mains powered devices isn't so easy as it seems. Huge measurement errors occur quickly without noticing. This article shows how this happens with a example power measurement on a desktop computer.
Measurements on a simple power supply
Choosing the right parameters is essential for every measurement. This article describes what the parameter indicates and which to chose. This is done with measurement examples on a simple power supply consisting of a rectifier and a smoothening capacitor.
