I would like to know how can I estimate the power consumption of a circuit say an inverter circuit in cadence environment. I searched through the internet, but couldn't find any suitable doc that is helpful in this regard. I am looking for the steps required for power estimation.
Thanks & Regards,
Save the current through the voltage source, and then multiply the current by the voltage - and maybe take the RMS of that using the rms function in the calculator?

Hi, I am running a .spice netlist using spectre. Unlike the initial issue I have hundreds of vsource and isource (I am using a power grid benchmark). Now can you please let me know which command should I use to measure the total power? Thank you.

simulator lang=spectremyOpts options pwr=subcktsave I0:pwr
where I0 is the name of the subckt you wish to save the power for.
