I was interest on the Technics to build a digital Watt meter. I find a interesting schematic in the Internet from DL6GL. He share the Atmel program too.
So I take a Atmel Chip and a 2 Lines Display to try to build one.
Thanks to DL6GL for sharing this !
The finish Watt meter after start up
This is my self made measuring bridge
The measuring bridge in a case
The watt meter works good, but it only usable up to 100 watts. I think you can use it for higher ranges, if you make the circuit board better then I.
Here is the manual to build the measuring bridge from DL4JAL: messkopf
Here is the Schematics from DL6GL
