Paper presentation on
Power line communication (PLC) presents an interesting and economicalsolution for Automatic Meter Reading (AMR). If an AMR system via PLC isset in a power delivery system, a detection system for illegal electricity usagemay be easily added in the existing PLC network. In the detection system, thesecond digitally energy meter chip is used and the value of energy is stored. Therecorded energy is compared with the value at the main kilo Watt-hour meter. Inthe case of the difference between two recorded energy data, an error signal isgenerated and transmitted via PLC network.The detector and control system is proposed. The architecture of thesystem and their critical components are given. The measurement results aregiven.
Index Terms:
Automatic meter reading (AMR), detector, illegalelectricity usage, power line communication, power linecommunications (PLC) modem.
India, the largest democracy with an estimated population of about1.04 billion, is on a road to rapid growth in economy. Energy, particularlyelectricity, is a key input for accelerating economic growth.The theft of electricity is a criminal offence and power utilities arelosing billions of rupees in this account. If an Automatic Meter Readingsystem via Power line Communication is set in a power delivery system, adetection system for illegal electricity usage is possible.Power line communications (PLC) has many new service possibilitieson the data transferring via power lines without use of extra cables.Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) is a very important application in these possibilities due to every user connected each other via modems, using power lines. AMR is a technique to facilitate remote readings of energyconsumption.
The following sections will describe the proposed detection and controlsystem for illegal electricity usage using the power lines.
2. Detection of illegal electricity usage
In this section the discussion is on how a subscriber can illegally usethe electricity and the basic building blocks for the detection using power line communication.
