Objectives: To design a COordinate Rotation DIgital Computer (CORDIC) based electrical signal processing system for efficient and minimalist electrical power processing. Methods: This stage of assessment describes the design and performance of a true RMS (Root-Mean Square) voltage meter on Xilinx SPARTAN 3E 1600 FPGA. Findings: The effectiveness of the proposed designs is assessed through FPGA implementations and error simulations. Measurement results show that the model can reproduce behaviors
