Energy Analysis of High Frequency 3 Phase

I have been trying to find the best way to measure 3 phase power for my thesis. My thesis works with RC hobbyist size BLDC motors. I am looking at better modeling the speed controller's efficiencies. Therefore I am measuring the DC power in and the AC power out.

The AC power out is:

PWM

Voltage unipolar square-wave

3 phase with no common ground

motor takes about a 6-8 kHz signal frequency

But the Speed controller has a switching frequency of 12 kHz

Vrms= 2-24VAC

Irms=0.2-80AAC

 

I can reduce said Vrms limits and Irms limits to achieve better accuracy.

I looked into the ADE 7762 but its Bandwidth looks too small.

Suggestion on which units I should use?
