- a test procedure to enable the measurement of the power and/or energy consumption in each of the EUT's power modes;
- formulas for calculating the typical energy consumption (TEC) for a given period (normally annual);
- a majority profile that should be used with this standard which enables conversion of average power into energy within the TEC formulas;
- a system of categorisation enabling like for like comparisons of energy consumption between EUTs and a pre-defined format for the presentation of results.
This standard does not set any pass/fail criteria for the EUTs. Users of the test results should define such criteria. Keywords: Power consumption, Desktop computer, Notebook computer
