dc.description.abstract A domestic power theft monitoring system is the subject system. This is a control system that relies on the algorithm that; monitors the current flowing through the live and neutral wires carrying electric power to the electricity user(s), makes a decision depending on the monitored values of current supplied to the microcontroller, and ensures that the load whose source of power goes through system are not running in the theft suspected mode. This system improves the technology of the existing metering systems in the attempt to reduce or completely curb down the cheating of electric power by looping that is known to be carried out today. In gathering the information, consultations and document reviews concerning the existing metering systems and their corresponding subsystems responsible for detecting and notifying power theft cases were used. It was from the analysis of the gathered information that the developing of a domestic power theft monitoring system kicked-off. I designed the system in Proteus ISIS software and wrote a code in Arduino which provided me with the basic picture on how the system was to work and be integrated from its constituent subparts. The components of the system were tested prior to system testing using a braid board after which they were soldered on a copper board. The functionality of the system was under the control of the algorithm/code that was written on the microcontroller. The system was finally subjected to system testing to validate and verify its working by me and some of my other classmates before presenting to Busitema University. en_US
