Abstract

One of the challenging problems when it comes to electric energy distribution is electricity theft. Regardless of whether the deed is done on a large scale or only by a single consumer, it is a problem that generates losses and its detection is not always easy. One of the crucial factors making the issue of electricity theft still relevant is the common physical access of the end users to the installations or meters. The article presents not only the factors encouraging energy consumers to engage in dishonest behavior and the techniques they use to achieve the intended result, but also technical measures aimed at detecting such actions. The discussed technical issues can prove useful in designing increasingly refined security measures and ways to detect electricity theft.
