AD-PQMON-SL: Power Quality Analyzer

Overview

Power quality monitoring is becoming important to keep power grids clean despite the harmonics introduced by inverter-based resources. Such activity improves the stability and reliability of the grid and improves equipment health by preventing flickering or blackouts.

The AD-PQMON-SL is a power quality monitoring solution based on the ADE9430, which is a high performance, polyphase energy and Class S power quality monitoring and energy metering device.

This reference design also has an on-board processor, the MAX32650 an ultralow power Arm Cortex-M4 with FPU-Based microcontroller (MCU) with 3 MB flash and 1 MB SRAM.


Features

  • It is DIN rail mountable
  • Has a modular hardware design:
    • a metering & compute base board
    • an add-on board for COMMS and HMI
  • Publicly available software for evaluation and prototyping
  • no-OS open source embedded software stack
  • Uses the ADI proprietary ADSW-PQ-CLS Power Quality Library to implement the IEC 61000-4-30 Class S power quality standard


Applications

  • Energy and power monitoring
  • Standards compliant power quality monitoring
  • Protective devices
  • Smart power distribution units
  • Polyphase energy meters
  • Intelligent buildings

Components

Metering and Compute Base Board

  • includes energy metering & processing
  • current input from external current transformers
  • fully isolated design
  • dual external supply (AC & USB-C)
  • RTC
  • USB 2.0 data interface
  • I/O connector for add-on boards


HMI & COMMS Add-on Board

  • Industrial connectivity: T1L (ADIN1110), RS485 (ADM2587E), Ethernet (WIZ82)
  • Long time data logging (SD card)
  • Standalone interface (Display 64 x 4 , 2 x LEDs, 5 x Buttons)
  • IO Prototyping area (I2C, SPI, GPIO, UART, 3V3, GND)
    • External control signals
    • GPS / GNSS (e.g., Accurate Synchrophasor Measurement)



System Setup

Requirements

  • 1 metering & compute board
  • optional 1 add-on board for COMMS and HMI
  • current transformers (included in the kit)
  • cables included in the kit
  • Host PC with GUI downloaded from GitHub


Software

GUI Scopy – Cross-platform Qt Application

Support

Analog Devices will provide limited online support for anyone using the reference design with Analog Devices components via the EngineerZone FPGA reference designs forum.

It should be noted that the older the tools' versions and release branches are, the lower the chances to receive support from ADI engineers.
