Hello! I am trying to build a digital kilowatt meter. In order for me to do that I must know/measure the power factor. Can anyone give me a hint on how I would be able to do it. And is there an IC which I can use to measure power factor.

Thanks!!

:D hi ron,

have seen the article you referred and it uses lcd to show the readings. since lcd here in our country is not that readily available, is there a way to use a 7-segment LED? :D

I see no reason you can't use 7 segment displays, but you might have to rewrite some of the code. **broken link removed** is another link to the same project.
