is a great challenge based on open-source software and hardware for electrical energy and power quality measurement in the new smartgrid and microgrid. Although there is a wide variety of devices on the market that can measure and control the electrical consumption of a typical home, in general, they lack of accuracy, are too expensive or use non-open protocols. oZm has born as a collaborative project between the University of Almeria (UAL) and the University of Granada (UGR) with the collaboration of zRed based on some strong ideas: offering an effective tool that applies advanced mathematical algorithms to obtain accurate electrical measurements, open the system to the community and promote awareness in energy saving.

Based on the aforementioned ideas and the social responsibility of the university, we feel the commitment to offer this result to the community.

Feel free to explore all the capabilities in our project's wiki
