    I would like to measure the power give from a source to a transformer and measure the power consume by a RL component. I see only voltmeter and amperemeter in circuit editor, it's not possible de put wattmeter ? Or maybe there's another solution for find the power ?

    Thanks in advance ;)

    Hello lba

    Only volt and amperemetres can be used - from my knowledge.You can also try to use Loss parametres available in Maxwell calculator (plotting or calculationg and exporting data) but that's only my guess
