This paper introduces European project TracePQM focused on the development of an open, modular, metrology grade measurement system for traceable measurement of electric power and power quality parameters. The developed system uses digital sampling techniques based on commonly available digitizers and it is designed for bandwidths up to at least 1 MHz. The paper briefly describes the project itself, the motivations, its goals and achievements. An open source measurement tool, which is one of the main outcomes of the project, is introduced.
