Abstract

The distribution  sector companies suffer from revenue losses because of the nontechnical losses NTLs .NTLs mainly caused by the illegal activities of the customer. NTLs caused a chain of further losses, such as damage to the distribution infrastructure components of grid, resulting in reduced distribution grid reliability .additionally lead to economic losses .This paper explain  the cause of NTLs and methods of it, history for discovering the techniques of NTLs and the economic losses , methodologies, and approaches aimed at continually optimizing in the accurate estimation and decrease of NTLs ,by using support vector machine SVM and advanced measurement infrastructure, as a solution to minimize the NTLs.
