Calibration setup ADE7878

Hi Analog Device people,


I have connected and external micro controller to the ADE7878 eval board via a SPI interface.

I can read out all the RMS values. I am using current transformers with a specified phase shift.

I have set the according correction value in the xPHCAL registers.


Now I need to calibrate the voltage and current gains.


Voltage calibration:

My voltage supply over here is not very stable and varies. What calibration setup would you recommend for calibration? 

What are you using as a reference?

Is it possible to calibrate the meter with a DC voltage, if I switch of the input high pass filter?




Is it possible to calibrate the gain and offset according to that image above ?

Gain  = (U2-U1) / (U2out - U1out)

Offset = U1*Gain - U1



Current calibration:

I want to measure about 100A in a 3 phase 400V net. Which accuracy can I reach without offset calibration.

What is your strategy to calibrate the offset?  How do you generate a stable AC current value?







many thanks.


Best Regards
