ABSTRACT: A smart meter is essential for realizing the smart grid. In order to further reduce the energy loss in the power grid, an extremely fine-grain power monitoring system is desirable and it will require an enormous number of low-cost power meters. Existing power meters, however, do not meet the cost and size requirements. On the other hand, organic devices on flexible films have great potential to realize low-cost power meters. In this paper, a 100-V AC power meter based on System-on-a-Film (SoF) concept is demonstrated.
