At last a chance to catch up with my Energy Monitor Arduino Project.   Here is the circuit I will build to work with my Arduino Uno via the SPI interface:   It is a design that was informed by discussions from this question:   How to Use Current and Voltage Sensors on Domestic supplies - Worldwide?   In the USA they use a split transformer to feed power to houses so that appliance will run on 110V or 220V. Using 220V keeps the current down for cookers and heaters.   ...
4. AardEnergy – Metering Chips In this Blog So far I have chosen sensors without much consideration of how the Arduino will handle the data. The plan is to use a meter chip with the Uno and to directly convert the sensor voltages (after suitable scaling) with the Due.  In this blog I will evaluate a number of meter chips for use with the Uno…ADE7753, ADE7763, MCP3905, MCP3909.

03 AardEnergy – Current and Voltage Transformers   In this Blog I have a Current Transformer and a Voltage Transformer to evaluate. In this blog there will be a description of the sensors and some analysis of the signals as well as some measurements to assess performance.   See previous Blogs… http://www.element14.com/community/groups/arduino/blog/2015/11/23/1-aardenergy-kick-off--a-new-project http://www.element14.com/community/groups/arduino/blog/2015/11/26/2-aardener ...
In this Blog Download the Arduino software and power up the Uno and Due. Look at debug, does it exist from the Arduino GUI? See previous Blog… http://www.element14.com/community/groups/arduino/blog/2015/11/23/1-aardenergy-kick-off--a-new-project IDE Download IDE Down load from Uno board page, version 1.6.6 (I had already installed 1.6.5, so an upgrade). 1.6.5 uninstalled first, 1.6.6 now in place. However, under Tools>Board…Due is not listed. Get Started with Uno Use the ID ...
1. AardEnergy.   A Simple Plan Measure current and voltage on single phase electrical supplies Calculate electrical parameters like RMS, Real Power, Apparent Power, Power Factor, Frequency, THD, kWhr Use Arduino Uno with an electrical metering chip for parameters Use Arduino Due using software calculation of parameters Kick Off I’m new to Arduino but have used microcontrollers like PSoC4 and ARM Cortex-M3. Although my career has been more about hardware design I have written softwa ...
