I am not understanding the readings of the CT.
Hardware: emonpi + YHDC SCT-013-000 (100A:50mA).
I have a small homelab with an standard power meter plug to compare the readings.
The output of the power meter is about 500W, whereas the one from the CT is between 15 and 20W.
What I did:
The CT is connected to the same cable from which I am reading ~500W with the power meter plug
The CT is closed correctly
I have restarted after connecting the CT & AC adapter.
VRMS reading is 240 ( I live in Germany)
After seeing this I connected the CT to the main line of my apartment, the readings are about 300W to 400W, I know for a fact that the current consumption is higher than that.
I also tried to check with a vacuum cleaner (600W), connecting the CT to it (also winded the cable 2x and 3x) with almost no change on the readings.
What am I missing?
Can I assume that the CT is not working properly already or is it possible to do any more troubleshooting with the emonpi?
Thanks in advance
