    hacking electricity meter

    Hi friends,

    Can any one help me to control the speed of electricity meter by inserting a device in any socket in the house without tempering the meter? the device consists of fan dimmer and other electronic components.

    thanks

    I think it is unlikely that you will be able to design such a device, but if you do it will for cetian make you financially independant

    Re: hacking electricity meter

    It seems to me that what you are asking is not related to a PFC correction circuit but a circuit to "steal" power from the utility company without having to pay for it.
    If so then this kind of request is completely inappropriate and can't be supported in this board.

    Re: hacking electricity meter

    The principle of Watt meter is to use voltage and current data to calculate watt; Watt seconds becomes kWH and that is what you are paying for. If yoy draw less amps you will use less Wh and pay less. Nothing that you do down stream from the power meter will reduce your uasage other tahn drawing less current

    I believe what you are referring to is a Power Factor Correction device.

    Industrial or manufacturing facilities with large numbers of inductive devices, such as motors, creates what is referred to as a Low Power Factor due to the large amount of inductive loads within the network, which in turn consumes a relatively large amount of Reactive Power besides the Real Power or Active Power.

    The same can be said about highly capacitive loads, which create a Low Power Factor and consume Reactive Power, although notice the capacitive reactance and the inductive reactance tend to cancel the other out.

    It is this Canceling Effect which Power Engineers take advantage of by balancing a highly inductive load with a network of passive capacitive devices or for a highly capacitive vice versa, which in both cases reduces the consumption of Reactive Power.

    Dear friends,

    please watch these clips. Although this is in Russian language. what is the working principle of these devices?

    Re: hacking electricity meter

    Dear Fragrance,
    I have read your technical comments so many times. I have read your thread regarding energy saver which consists of pic uC, transistors and two mosfets. which exremely reduces the consumption of AC. Have you succeded to develop this energy saver? if so kindly share the knowledge on edaboard or on my e-mail:javed4004 at yahoo dot com. In my country the AC cannot be afforded.
    waiting for positive response.

    best regards,

    javed

    Re: hacking electricity meter

    Dear BigDog,

    Have you watched the russian clips in my previous post? there are some devices exist which control the electricity meter speed by inserting in any socket in the house without tempering the meter

    How do you know that those clips are genuine and not fake?
