Area Under Curve-Integration

In the attached plot i have power dissipation on y -axis and time on x-axis. My objective to integrate the waveform(on y axis- Area under curve) and then divide by time(x-axis: Time taken for covered area ) to get the average power dissipation. I am trying get an integral plot similar to the one we get in the math waveform (integral function) in oscilloscope. I am attaching a video link regarding the same

I am also enclosing the .csv file

In this tutorial Dave demonstrates the seldom used and often little understood mathematical integration function available on your modern digital oscilloscop...

In other words:

You can only 'integrate' (use the integration operator) when you have a description of the function that you want to integrate. You do not have a function, but a set of data points. The best you can do is sum the numbers over your range of interest, and divide by the time difference over that range.

See if the attached helps.

Success!
