Definitely turn off fast polling if you're logging to make a power plot. Not only are there duplicate data points, but there are some that even go backwards! This creates big spikes that can skew the numbers.
Also, VD is set up to automatically trim to only 100% TPS. As long as you don't go WOT more than once in a single log, then it should show you the correct plot without any manipulation.
Interesting I did not know that about the less than 100%. I just assumed that you needed to trim that out so I always did. I use the Cobb AP V2b for logging and it's very easy with VD.

Are you saying you get different readings/ plots with and without the trimming of the less than 100% TPS on VD?
I have the full logs and the trimmed logs so I'll have to check that out!
