Abstract: In this paper we are going to discuss about the reduction of power theft in the distribution region from the substation. Power theft is generally a major problem which was started since the distribution of electricity. There are various methods used to perform theft such as Direct hooking from the service line, by-passing the electric meter, Injecting foreign element in the electric meter, physical obstruction and so on. Due to the power theft the demand on electrical energy raises which results in increase in cost per unit charges. To avoid the power theft we are using a current transformer and a microcontroller in the energy meter which can only be operated by the department officials. The current-transformer detects the flow of electricity in the line and sends the feedback to the microcontroller which will cut-off the supply. This process is very easy to adapt and one person can handle all the zonal supplies in the region. By this method we control the non technical losses and also reduce the man power and also the consumption of time.
