The Tektronix THS3024 handheld oscilloscope is explored in this study by examining its efficiency in electrical measurements.
In this study, the potential of the instrument is used to evaluate its performance in both unloaded and loaded engines. The THS3024 is
equipped with 8 channels and allows the measurement of current and voltage. For this work, 6 channels were enabled due to the delta
configuration of the engine, providing 3 voltage channels and 3 current channels. Using a 60 volt supply, the channels were configured
to measure voltage and current parameters with appropriate attenuations. Through rigorous analysis, this study examines the behavior of the engine at startup and steady state, both with and without load. The plots showing the current waveforms during startup and steady state with and without load highlight the ability of the device to automatically adjust its scale to capture even subtle variations. The study acknowledges that while intrinsic factors have hindered the analysis of harmonics, the THS3024 still provides the ability to display harmonic spectra. By examining the voltage and current response during engine startup, this study demonstrates the value of the THS3024 in capturing essential transient characteristics and precise parameter changes. The negligible differences between loaded and unloaded engines underscore the reliability of the instrument in evaluating electrical behavior. This study thus demonstrates the potential of the THS3024 for precise electrical measurements and promotes its applicability in electrical engineering research.
