In this paper Arduino based power theft detection and protection system is designed. An increase in the demand of electric power for household, commercial and industrial loads lead to management of electric distribution system become more complicated. Lack of information at the bases station regarding status of the distribution network has been identified as the major bottleneck to its effective monitoring and controlling. Electrical power theft detection and protection system is used to detect and protect an unauthorized tapping on distribution line. In this paper ACS712 series current sensor has been used as the interfacing instrument between the power line current and Arduino. To isolate power line from power theft system relay used as switching gear. Arduino control all operations that all devices do. This system would provide a simple way to detect and prevent an electrical power theft without any human interference, maximize the profit margin of power utility company and Prevent fault due to over load. The theft detection of electricity also became possible by using this system through which server received the message when users by passed the meter. This system provides billing activity in addition to detection and protection power theft.
