How about read AC Voltage sensor using ads1115?

Thanks for writing this.
Mine is crashing. It seems to go wrong at the line: double current = calcIrms(2048);
I determined that by changing it to double current =1; and this results in the code working and uploading the value 1 to Thingspeak.
Any ideas where I am going wrong ?
