Help with ade7753 and arduino. Need help

Hi everyone,


Im student of Electronic engineering in the country of Colombia, for mi grade project I am implementing an energy meter with the ADE7753 and arduino (wemos d1 mini) the voltage line is 120 VAC and 60 Hz ,  for the current measurement I am using a hall effect sensor acs714 of 20 A and for voltage measurement a voltage divider, the schematic is as follows:


But the problem is i not getting any result from the spi registers of the ADE7753 ( the serial monitor is showing a value 0 for the three registers (Voltage, Current and Energy), i am not sure is the problem is the ade7753 or the arduino code, for more information, the arduino code for the spi communication with ADE7753 is this: 


#include <SPI.h>


const int slavePin = 15 // CS is D8 in wemos d1 mini but in IDE arduino is the 15

int v= 0 ;

float i =0;

int w=0;


void setup() {

 Serial.begin(115200);  // start serial monitor

SPI.begin(); // start SPI library

 pinMode(slavePin, OUTPUT); //CS as output pin


void loop(){

int v= readRegister(0x17,2);          // i call the reading function
 float i=readRegister(0x16,3);
 int w= readRegister(0x02,2);


 Serial.print(" VRMS 0x17:"); // i show the results in serial monitor 
  Serial.print(" IRMS 0x16:");
  Serial.print(" AENERGY 0x02:");




unsigned int readRegister(byte thisRegister, int bytesToRead) {
  byte inByte = 0;           // Byte incoming from SPI
  unsigned int result = 0;   // Result to return
  Serial.print(thisRegister, BIN);
  // byte variable to value of Adress of the ADE7753
  byte dataToSend = thisRegister;
  Serial.println(thisRegister, BIN);

// MODE 1 based on information of ADE7753 datasheet
  SPI.beginTransaction(SPISettings(4000000,MSBFIRST,SPI_MODE1)); // 4 MHz, MSB first, MODE 1 SPI
  // activate the chip
  digitalWrite(slavePin, LOW);
  // Send the Adress of the registers i want read
  // Send a 0x00 to get the incoming byte from ADE7753 register
  result = SPI.transfer(0x00);
  // decrease the num of bytes to read  :
  // if another byte to read, do:
  if (bytesToRead > 0) {
    // shift the first byte to left , then get the second byte:
    result = result << 8;
    inByte = SPI.transfer(0x00);
    // Combine bytes:
    result = result | inByte;
    // decrease the num of bytes to read :
  // Disable the ADE chip:
  digitalWrite(slavePin, HIGH);
  // end of SPI transaction
  // return the result
    return (result);



end of code

I really need help , i want to know is i doing something wrong, beacuse i think the problem is with the ADE7753. Thanks for the attention
