AbstractIn this paper, a technical analysis of the main methods used to detect non-technical losses in energy distribution systems will be presented. Non-technical losses are the main source of revenue loss for energy utilities, causing not only financial losses, but also damaging the quality of service for these companies. Methods for detecting non-technical losses are divided into three groups: Data oriented methods; Network Oriented Methods and Hybrid Methods. The performance of methods from each of these groups will be evaluated, showing that data oriented methods need additional installed equipment, and future trends are hybrid methods, artificial intelligence and data science.
