ADE7953 and doubts about the link between active parts 230Vac and the ground AGND, DGND

Hi all,


this is my first post and this is the first time that I work on energy monitoring and metering.


I have some doubt about connections between active parts at 230Vac and AGND, DGND in ADE7953 datasheet and AN-639.

In my application I need to measure currents using shunt resistors.


In fig.9 AN-639, I see that phase is connected to ground.

But in fig. 35 of the ADE7953 datasheet , the pahse is connected to the 1MOhm resistance and the next filter.

This is the first problem: how can I connect the attenuation network in this case?

It is not dangerous to take an active conductor in the entire circuit ground?

And another question: in this case, where I must connect the neutral line?


The second problem is the following: after the 230Vac section, I'm using a switching power supply (with its HF transformer) that gives output to +12Vdc and the GND is insulated...


How can I connect the "phase ground" to other grounds (AGDN and DGND) if I want to maintain the isolation?

Maybe I need to use 3 different grounds?


Please, could you give me some schematis and/or layout examples?

Thank you in advance,
