How to use the wattmeter

·        Drag and drop the wattmeter.

·        There will be four terminals as shown below:

Say you want to measure the power dissipated across an inductor. Connect the two terminals labelled V across the inductor and the ones labelled I in series with the inductor.

·        An example circuit is shown below:

·        Click on Run after giving the appropriate time domain settings (or default settings). You will see the result (power and power factor) in data analyzer and also on the wattmeter.
