Measurement of Energy Consumption for Desktop and Notebook Computers
IEC 62623:2012 covers personal computing products and specifies a test procedure to enable the measurement of the power and/or energy consumption in each of the equipment under test (EUT) power modes. The publication also covers formulas for calculating the typical energy consumption (TEC) for a given period and a majority profile that enables conversion of average power into energy within the TEC formulas. A system of categorization enabling like for like comparisons of energy consumption between EUTs and a pre-defined format for the presentation of results is also included. This standard does not set any pass/fail criteria for the EUTs.
