In the past decade, several efforts around the world were started with the goal of introducing “smart metering” capabilities into the power grid. These efforts have spurred renewed interest in the design of next generation Narrowband Power Line Communications (NB-PLC) transceivers. Power line communications (PLCs) have recently absorbed interest in the smart grid since they offer communication capability in an easy and simple deployment. The main role of PLC access network (PLC-AN), which is constructed with medium and low voltage distribution networks, is to exchange control signals between substations and end users. It is estimated that utility companies lose more than $25 billion every year due to energy theft around the world. To address this challenge, in this project, we propose the background of AMI and identify major security requirements that AMI should meet. It is used to detect the energy theft made by the user.
