VRMS - calcul

I would like to know how the VRMS is calculated as it is always in [257-260] volts.
With what information the software calculated the VRMS?

Re: VRMS - calcul

You need to look at the source files for emonLib, which you can get from Github. If you need a written explanation, try Building Blocks or Wikipedia.

The calculation is very simple, from Building Blocks:
"An RMS value is defined as the square root of the mean value of the squares of the instantaneous values of a periodically varying quantity, averaged over one complete cycle."
emonLib does that over many cycles in order to produce a better average.
