Abstract:This report discusses the possibility of implementing a new method to measure the frequency of a power supply. Starting point is a universal measuring transducer called EM4000AC produced by ELEQ, a company dedicated to the electrical sector, situated in Steenwijk (TheNetherlands). The inside microprocessor responsible for all the calculations is a Digital Signal Processor dsPIC30F6011A) fabricated by Microchip. The DSP functionality available in the current hardware is not used yet. The calculation of the frequency is an important parameter for the correct performance of the whole device. Several algorithms to improve the correct operation are studied and evaluated. The possibility of changing the hardware using new faster micro-processors available in the current market is also investigated
