A novel system has been devised to eliminate power theft by automatic release of high voltage in the transmission line in response to the command received by the remote termination unit (high voltage source) from Arduino in the event of theft being detected. Due to the high voltage in the transmission lines, the pilferer’s appliances drawing power illegally by way of tapping get impaired. This operation is transient (for five seconds) and during this time, the supply of voltage for normal consumers is kept suspended. However, in case of emergency i.e., when the normal supply cannot be disturbed, the bypass mode is activated so that consumers continue to get an uninterrupted power supply. During this period, the process of theft elimination is kept suspended. The actual working of this novel system has been demonstrated by simulating the process in Proteus 8.6 and a working hardware prototype is developed. The process thus developed is effective and reliable.
