Oscillograph Analysis

Most technically oriented people recognize the familiar 60Hz voltage and current traces that constitute the parameters of an operating power system. There are, however, transient components superimposed on the 60Hz waveform in the form of spikes and higher and lower frequencies that accompany faults and other switching events.
