Graphical Abstract:


Background: In the present scenario, electricity theft is a major problem for the government. This problem affects the Indian economy since GDP goes down due to theft. Electricity is a part of living and its theft affects the common man who indirectly pays for the theft done by someone else in the form of extra charges.

Methods: In this paper, we present a novel identification pattern-based energy fault detector, by leveraging the customers' normal and faulty line. The target of this paper was to implement a system to monitor the readings and to find the fault in the power line in real time. Manipulations in readings of the meter are impossible.

Results: There is a real time monitoring of meters. Readings could be provided to customers on daily, weekly, monthly or yearly basis. As soon as there occurs a fault, it could be rectified because detection is on a real time basis and further messages can be sent to the customer about the fault.

Conclusion: A comparison of developed real time monitoring system is done with GSM meters and analog meters.

Keywords: Electricity theft, power distribution, fault detection, GDP, profibus/profinet, MFM.
