How to build an Arduino energy monitor – measuring mains voltage and current

This guide details how to build a simple electricity energy monitor on that can be used to measure how much electrical energy you use in your home. It measures voltage with an AC to AC power adapter and current with a clip on CT sensor, making the setup quite safe as no high voltage work is needed. The energy monitor can calculate real power, apparent power, power factor, rms voltage, rms current. All the c ...

Real-Time Energy Monitor with Arduino and LabVIEW using arduino

We present the candidature of Mr. Michele Mancini for the TiDiGino Contest. He proposes us a recent application with Arduino: Real-Time Energy Monitor This is a simple power meter to analize the current consuming in a house using the led indicator of a house energy meter. Reading the red led of a home energy counters the system detects the corrent consumption in a house. It is a noninvasive method, not cut ...

Arduino home energy monitor shield

Although products are becoming more and more available for monitoring your home power usage, I'm one of those idiots who can't leave well enough alone and who would rather shell out $100 and hours of my time in order to save $20 and learn something in the process.  Building on the fine work of Trystan Lea and others at OpenEnergyMonitor.org as well as various and sundry web sources and acquaintances the res ...
