The figure shows a three-phase delta connected load supplied from a
400V,50Hz,3-phase balanced source. The pressure coil(PC) and current
coil(CC) of a wattmeter are connected to the load as shown,with the coil
polarities suitably selected to ensure a positive deflection. The
wattmeter reading will be   [GATE]

points A,B and C in the circuit of the adjacent figure. Vin is a square
wave of a suitable low frequency. The display on Ch1 and Ch2 are as
shown on the right. Then the “signal” and “ground” probes S1, G1 and S2,
G2 of Ch1 and Ch2 respectively are connected to points [GATE 2007]
