I have an electric motor, that runs, but at quick intervals it turns off and on. I was wondering what kind of meter I should use for measuring its power consumption. An ammeter(I know doesn't show power consumption), would just be rapidly flipping from 0 to x as the motor turns off and on. Same as volt meter. I would like to measure voltage as well. The basic problem I have, is that I can't read the dials if they are jumping around. Hope I'm being clear. Thanks guys. I know its an out of the ordinary question.
