Non-technical Losses Detection Module

Assignment: Identification of illegally connected network segments and places with illegal power consumption.

Input data

30 transformer stations
(1200 consumption points)

  • Hourly consumption profiles
  • Instant voltage values
  • PLC statistics and characteristics

Our solution

Determining suspicious network segments

  • Creation of a topological model
  • Estimation of missing voltage data
  • Determination of the legal power flow
  • Estimation of the actual power flow and calculation of the suspiciousness rating for each network segment

The result

With our method we have achieved 150% accuracy increase in determining the illegal connections, proven by physical inspections of the network (compared to the previously used method).
