This project was the design and implementation of a prototype system for electricity theft detection and avoidance, automatic billing, loss calculation and control. It was an amalgamation of software and hardware design with wireless detection and transformation of data to a centrally managed database. It provided Online monitoring of Active Connections, Real time measurement data generated for the distribution system from the core system to the end consumer, Detection and isolation of fraudulent connections, Detection of modified (illegal) meters to give accurate consumption of electricity by end consumers and Elimination of Billing Irregularities.
