Further to this thread https://ez.analog.com/message/334215-ade9000-vrms-value-question
I have a board with eight ADE9000 devices. The single phase line voltage is attenuated, buffered, and then drives all eight devices in parallel (on all 3 phases). So all devices receive the identical voltage signal.
I now capture the VRMS, VRMSONE and VRMS1012 registers and get results as follows:-
The largest difference between devices is 2.024V which is nearly 1%, much higher than what I was expecting.
I then powered up the board again and repeated, with the following results:-
The largest difference is 2.536V (more than 1%), but of at least as much concern is the fact that the relative difference between channels are completely different! Previously, channel 3 to channel 1 was around +0.5V, now it's around -2V. If I repeat the exercise again then the channel differences will change again, seemingly at random.
How would I calibrate this, when I have no idea which channel is measuring the correct voltage, and whichever channel is correct might then be incorrect the next time I power up the board?
Can anyone explain why there is so much difference, and why the difference changes (randomly) between power cycles?
