# measurement of AC current and voltage and DC current and voltage

Hello every body,

I have starter my first bigger project with arduino to measure AC and DC current and voltage. I am using this modules to measure AC current ACS712, AC Voltage FZ1440, DC current ACS758 and DC voltage over voltage divider.

And my problem is all this modules are connected to analog ports and if I run them separately they work fine and every module is connected to a different port (specified in code), but when I connect them all together I have really not usably informations, then the information I get are changing every second. what could I do... thanks

post schematics,screenshot of serial monitor and photos of your circuit.

Ok, ok I will when I get home... Thank you for now

schematics…
and Links to all the info about modules and code that I used

This is my code for it: it is not all in english but still I hope you will understand

// Merjenje AC toka z modulom ACS712
const int sensorInAC = A0;
int mVperAmpAC = 185; // use 100 for 20A Module and 66 for 30A Module
double VoltageAC = 0;
double VRMS_AC = 0;
double AmpsRMS_AC = 0;

float getVPP_AC()
{
float resultAC;
int maxValueAC = 0; // store max value here
int minValueAC = 1024; // store min value here
uint32_t start_time = millis();
while((millis()-start_time) < 100) //sample for 1 Sec
{
// see if you have a new maxValue
{
/record the maximum sensor value/
}
{
/record the maximum sensor value/
}
}

// Subtract min from max
resultAC = ((maxValueAC - minValueAC) * 5.0)/1024.0;

return resultAC;
}

// merjenje AC napetosti z modulom

nobody?!? :o

What are you doing to reduce noise?

Did you know that it is a wise idea to take a few readings and ignoring the first few, to allow a particular analog input to settle?

I see your program looks for and saves only the highest and lowest values. What are you doing to ensure you aren't just reading noise peaks?

for the output signal of this FZ1440 see attachment

Hi Try to ground the arduino properly means sepratly. Then your analog inputs not get raw values or mixed up. Thanks.
