Advantages of Induction meter

  • No moving iron.
  • High torque is to weight ratio.
  • The moving element has no electrical contact with the circuit.
  • Less affected by stray magnetic field.
  • More accurate on a wide range of loads.
  • Good damping.

Disadvantages of Induction meter

  • Without proper compensation measures, a considerable amount of errors are caused in the measurement due to temperature, waveform and frequency changes.
  • Induction meters can use only for AC measurements.
  • They consume a considerable amount of power.
  • They have nonlinear scales.
