DETECTING AND MINIMIZING ELECTRICITY THEFT: A REVIEW

 

 

Abstract— Electricity theft is the difference between the power supplied and user’s consumption, in the distribution system. Efficient utilization and conservation of energy is the major priority of all power utilities, transmitting the generated power to customer loads through transmission and distribution systems. However, existing transmission system, suffer from technical losses in electrical equipments and non-technical losses in the distributed circuits. Distributed losses are mainly caused due to theft of supplied electricity at the customer premises. Therefore, it is necessary to design smarter techniques at the distribution system, which are capable of detecting and minimizing thefts at the customer premises. This paper evaluates the well-known techniques including observer meter, smart meters, and smart prepaid energy metering system, which are used to minimize theft in distribution system.
