Three Phase Meter, purpose of the meter and its field of use is the execution of electromagnetic tests of transformers of all circuits and connection groups.
List of basic functions during single-phase and three-phase excitation of the tested transformer:
- current and idling loss measurement at low voltage;
- short-circuit resistance measurement;
- transformation ratio measurement;
- determination of connection groups of three-phase transformer windings and terminal polarity of single-phase transformers;
- measurement of DC copper resistance.
During the measurement, the asymmetry, the unsinusoidality and the excitation voltage frequency are controlled.
The function of the meter is maintenance, repair, setting-up, and testing of power transformers, both in laboratory and filed conditions by the services of ORGRES.

Definition: The meter which is used for measuring the power of three phase supply is known as the three phase energy meter. The three phase meter is constructed by connecting the two single phase meter through the shaft. The total energy is the sum of the reading of both the elements.
