QuantumPower: Quantum traceability for AC power standards

 

2020–2023     Open access quantum power measurement systemEmma.jpg

The traceability of primary electrical power calibration to the volt and the ampere is typically through complicated calibration of thermal voltage converters, current shunts and digitizers. A more direct link of electrical power and power quality to the new quantum SI would improve uncertainties and decrease costs.

Project establishes develops a quantum sampling standard for electrical power, which is open to metrology community and provides direct traceability to the new quantum SI.

Project actions:
WP1: Hardware and measurement methods development
WP2: System development and validation
WP3: Promotion, future plans and, strategies

VTT MIKES will adapt its Programmable Josephson Voltage Standard (PJVS) for power measurement.
