This paper presents and analyzes analog front-end designs for the coupling of high-voltage and high-current bipolar signals to low voltage single supply analog to digital converters. The primary application is in the measurement of voltage, current, and power factor in single-phase residential power and energy meters that utilize microcontroller based architectures.
