THD Registers

The eGauge can calculate Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) on a given CT or voltage reference. Each THD measurement will use one physical register. The eGauge can measure up to the 10th harmonic. To do so:

Navigate to Settings -> Installation

Under Registers, click the "Add Registers" button

Name the register as appropriate

Using the dropdown menu, change the register type from "P" to "="

A second dropdown menu will appear.  Select the unit type to "total harm. dist"

In the formula field, enter the following:  THD(HZ, chan("XX")) where HZ is the system frequency in Hz and XX represents either a CT (CT1, CT2, CT3, etc) or a voltage reference (L1, L2, L3).

Click "Save" at the bottom of the page when finished (valid credentials required)

Firmware 4.0 and later:

CTx channel names have been replaced with Sx channel names. Thus, instead of using chan("CT1"), use chan("S1"). Configuration is otherwise identical:
