Abstract

In this study a data acquisition card has been designed and implemented to observe and analysis of the voltages and the currents of an alternator under resistive, capacitive and inductive loads. Detail analysis of power, power factor, phase angles and harmonics of the alternator has been done using software written in LabVIEW. The measurement system of voltage and current is opened to remote access. Users can access to the system from any computer having internet connection and make the instantaneous measurements. The experimental results show that the data obtained from power analyzer are very close to remote monitored one. Therefore the system developed can be a useful tool for engineering education purposes as an online course material, a simulator and an online control experiment.
