This looks substantially better than the current version. I still prefer WKO+, but this could be a longer-term placeholder for a new PTap owner waiting to buy WKO+:

Normalized power? Didn't see it there. It does look to be a great improvement though. I may hold off on getting WKO now to see how this turns out.

Normalized power = (Total energy)/(Total Time)

No, NP is 30s rolling averages, all taken to the 4th power, averaged, then take the 4th root of the average. So, you have to have at least 30s of data.
NP is also intellectual property of TrainingPeaks, so you won't find it in other software w/out a license.

I knew it was more complicated than that.

Can someone explain to me what the Peak Power Values (5 sec, 30 sec, 1 min, etc...) number represents? Is it my highest average for that time period?

I finally broke down and bought WKO about a month ago; I was using PowerAgent 7 (and before that, 5).
I'll say this: WKO doesn't do anything I can't do in Excel. But WKO does it for me. PowerAgent was slow, cumbersome, and had less features than WKO.
