Exclamation App note on rms measurement

Several recent topics were about rms, peak, avg measurements and I just found this application note that seems rather timely:

Yes, it's quite a nice tutorial.

More significantly. we should ask, "When do I actually need to measure true RMS?" I have a couple of true-RMS DMMs (chosen for their accuracy - true RMS was incidental), and the only time I have needed the true-RMS facility was when measuring valve heater voltages.

It's quite unusual to need true-RMS in audio (although THD+N is usually measured with an RMS rectifier).
