Currently power theft is a common problem face by all electricity companies. Since power theft directly affect the profit made by electricity companies, theft detection and prevention of electricity is mandatory. In this paper we proposed a hybrid approach to detect the electricity theft i.e. to detect suspected consumers who is doing theft. We use SVM and ELM for our approach. We also compare our approach with KNN.
