We have AFG3102. I need to drive a non-linear circuit with changing input impedance. Is there a way to measure the inserted power to my circuit.
I need to measure power transfer efficiency. I can measure my output power but couldn't find a way to measure input power.
My circuit: a half wave rectifier
Input signal: Sine wave 4 Vp-p
Typical current less than 10uA

That is a challenging situation for two reasons:
- the changing input r of the load will play havoc with the afg actual applied voltage to your DUT.
- the low currents are beyond what a current probe and a scope can do for you.
You did not mention the frequencies, but consider placing a shunt resistor in series and use our DMM7510 1MHz digitizer on the voltage across the shunt. You can get your input power from the R and V.
