The determination of the efficiency of an electric motor or an inverter in an electric vehicle requires power measurements on the ac side of the inverter. Voltage and current signals arise there from the switching operation of the inverter and are therefore hardly bandlimited. The finite bandwidth of measurement devices, like sensors or ADCs, yields to a bandwidth limitation of the measured signal... View full abstract»
