Special Cases during the Detection of the Hook Style Energy Theft in Overhead Low-Voltage Power Grids through HS-DET Method – Part 2: Different Measurement Differences, Feint “Smart” Hooks and Hook Interconnection Issues

Athanasios G. Lazaropoulos

Abstract


On the basis of [1] and [2], this paper investigates the possibility of jamming the method of the detection of the hook style energy theft (HS-DET method) that is used for the detection of the hook style energy theft in the overhead low-voltage (OV LV) power grids. Three more sophisticated scenarios, which have been revealed in [2] and are the evolution of the three main suspicious issues of [1], are further investigated in this paper. The detection efficiency of HS-DET method is assessed by using the already validated percent error sum (PES) submetrics and appropriate contour plots.
