Errors in wattmeter: 

i) pc - inductance: Pressure coil inductance causes wattmeter to read more power than actual . 

ii) pc-capacitance: The wattmeter reads less power. 

iii) Mutual inductance: An emf induced in pressure coil due to current through the current coil. This emf of pressure coil opposes applied voltage. 

iv) Connection: In uncompensated wattmeter , the reading of wattmeter includes the powerloss in coils.
