Goodness knows, Wall Street CEOs and their agents, minions, and operatives haven’t a clue how to proceed along such a decent path without being lead by their comfort-loving noses like Disney’s Ferdinand the Bull smelling flowers The embodiments were chosen and described in order to best explain the principles of the invention and its practical application to thereby enable others skilled in the art to best utilize the invention in various embodiments and with various modifications as are suited to the particular use contemplated. The method of claim 10 , further comprising transmitting a message reporting the identity and grid location of a meter which has stopped communicating with its Transformer Area Network. For simplicity, assume that impedance in Node N is properly largeā€”no power is being stolen in Node N. For example, a peer-to-peer transformer area network is also suitable.

Prior art methods for detecting power theft can be divided into three categories. Power information management apparatus, power information management system, and power information management method.

The method silcer claim 8comprising reporting a change in the order of astrolinl meters from one time-stamped astrolknk period to the next as an anomaly potentially indicating tampering with the meters of the Transformer Area Network. His year legacy in sreies Department of Defense includes the development and deployment of transformational airborne, ground- and space-based systems. The technical losses due to the resistance of the low voltage line between the point of origin and each meter are presumed to be less than a predetermined amount, so that any difference in power loss above the predetermined amount can be presumed to be due either to theft or to line defects.

Voltage conservation using advanced metering infrastructure and substation centralized voltage control. The present invention does not require instrumentation of the transformer at the service delivery point service transformer. Matthew Schaefer Professor Matthew Schaefer zeries nearly two decades of law teaching experience and has taught courses in international law, international trade law, international business transactions, foreign relations law and policy, space law, and cyber law.


Admiral Cecil Haney is Commander of U.

Impedancewhich is normally extremely large when no theft is occurring, represents a potential unauthorized, unmetered load.

Matsuura started his career in satellite tracking and control. Power source supplies transformer with power at a medium voltage, which is stepped down by transformer to the low voltage range accepted by the meters in the transformer area, here represented by meter in Node asyrolink and meter in Node N Impedance represents the impedance of the medium-voltage grid.


Astrolinnk, Lieutenant General Ret. Curry Vice President – Washington Operations. Ehrenfreund holds degrees in Astronomy and Biology at the University of Vienna, where she also earned her doctorate, and she has a Masters of Arts in Management and Leadership.

Asstrolink method can be employed with some meters not having a Remote, but some thefts may go undetected in that case, depending on the topology of the TAN and the location of the unauthorized tap with respect to the communicating meters.
