Hi friends,

How to measure part of a voltage with ground reference?

e.g  I want to measure voltage from 10v to 14v with ground
reference (i.e 0 - 4v ref to ground), which is varying from 0 to 20v.

Regards

I have never had to do this, I think your answer is in opamps to subtract voltage.. something like this...

Hi

You need to use a resistive voltage divider using 2 resistor in series between the power source to be measured and ground

and measuring point from the resistor interaction and ground

solve the formula for R2 : Vo = VCC*R2/(R1+R2) where R1= 10K,VCC = 20V & Vo = 4V

All the best
