Hello,

Is anyone can help me for my program to display voltage and current on 4 seven segment display.I am using 8052, adc 0809 in my proj & for programming Keil 4 using c. I hav used lookup table and m able to extract all the 4 nos. but problem is that how to shift decimal point for diff values like 12.33,9.999,999.9 etc.

Plz help me....

Hello shivalitambe

I can not imagine how your design is built.
The four 7-segment displays are connected to the multiplexing system?
Or, How are they connected?

In your lookup table, You could put that decimal point?
or not?

You have a number to convert, somehow you extract the digits to get then thru your lookup table, so you must be familiar with scaling your numbers. Similarly you can checn the range of your number to see what decimal point to light:

Rich (BB code):
if (number < 1) 
{
    // light 1st dp .---
}
elseif (number < 10) 
{
    // light 2nd dp -.--
}
elseif (number < 100) 
{
    // light 3rd dp --.-
}
elseif (number < 1000) 
{
    // light 1st dp ---.
}
else
{
    // good lord how did you get here?
    // the number is too large to display
}
Note with no idea how your hardware connects I have no suggestion about how one lights a decimal point.

Thanx Ernime...

I thought like above logic. but how should i add no.for dp in lookup table for separate display as all are multiplexed.

I have one more problem,
I am sensing voltages , currents , calculating power factor using formula
t=t1-t2;
x=(2*3.14*50*t)/1000;
pf=cos(x);
i used float variables. but i dont know how to round off float no. upto 4 digits only as m using only 4 seven segmen displays.?

If anyone have program for displaying parameters like voltage, current, power factor, kva, kvar etc. plz send me. or plz help me how to display it using 4 seven segment displays. I am sensing voltage n current using zero crossing detectors, sending it to adc and 8052.

Plz help me...

Can you please post your schematic ? because without knowing the hardware, it is near to impossible to explain the software.

I second that. As far as scaling your floating point numbers, consider the following.

If the number is over 1000, take the integer portion. Save the decimal position as 0.*
If the number is between 100 and 1000, multiply by 10 and take the integer portion. Save the decimal position as 1.
Between 10 and 100, multiply by 100. The decimal position is 3.
Between 0 and 10, multiply by 1000 and the decimal position is 4.

Less than 0 may or may not be possible, depending on your hardware (what decimal points are available on the 7 segment displays).

* the decimal point indices depend on whether the dp appears to the right or left of the 7 segment displays. These assume they are positioned to the right.
