I have a file containing the current and corresponding voltage waveforms of several appliances (TDMS). I need to compute in DIADem the relative active and reactive powers using the simple formulas : P=U*I*cos(phi) ; Q=U*I*sin(phi)
Can you help?
Yes, in DIAdem you can multiply whole channels together and perform math functions like sine and cosine on them. Here is an example code that can get you started:
Call Calculate("ch(""Results/P"") = ch(""Raw Data/U"") * ch(""Raw Data/I"") * cos(Pi)") Call Calculate("ch(""Results/Q"") = ch(""Raw Data/U"") * ch(""Raw Data/I"") * sin(Pi)")
Also, you can use the channel calculator to do those calculations manually (or to record them into script):
