Measuring Power Consumption

Filed under: Uncategorized — ioconnor @ 7:42 pm

I’d very much like to record the power meter settings, the power on each circuit, and the power used at the plugs and put them onto a server. Then put in alerts and the like so I can tell what’s really going on. This guy has done one step of it, measuring the power consumed on each circuit and recording it to a server. I’m not too thrilled with how he did it but it’s a starting point. For instance I’d want the transducers to be wireless and much smaller. So the resulting measurements could be recorded via wifi with no extra boards. So a simple energy efficient laptop could be used as the server. Anyways this article is good and I need to reread it when I am ready to start my project.
