Abrégé

A master meter (120) is connected to a data concentrator (110) via a first power line communication network (100) and to remote basic meters (131, 132, 133) via a second power line communication network (101). The master meter (120) emulates a smart electrical meter application in relation to the data concentrator (110) for each remote basic meter (131, 132, 133), in particular in order to construct a corresponding load curve. Fraud is detected when the ratio of energy consumption stated by all the remote basic meters to energy consumption measured by the master meter (120) is lower than a predefined threshold and, in addition, several load curves show a zero-crossing. The master meter (120) compares total energy consumptions estimated based on extrapolations of certain load curves with the measured energy consumption in order to identify which remote basic meter (131, 132, 133) is subject to fraud.

Abrégé

A method for recording information from a set of electric meters, called meters, connected by a power supply network to a data hub, called hub, with which said meters communicate through a power line carrier. The method is based on categorising the meters into a plurality of categories. A first category, recorded first, consolidates meters that have not been recorded during the last execution of the method. The other categories consolidate the meters as a function of a response rate to requests for information originating from the hub, the categories consolidating the meters having the lowest response rates being recorded last. In each category, each meter is categorised as a function of information representing a topology of the network influencing a risk of failure of transmissions of information by said meter. The hub takes into account the categorisation of the meters when recording the meters of said network in order to reduce occurrences of conflicting periods.

Abrégé

In the field of the allocating of communication addresses to devices connected to a carrier-current communication network and more particularly, networks for the remote reading of electrical meters from a data concentration apparatus through the electrical network, there is proposed an improved method of allocating MAC addresses for this type of network making it possible to save a great deal of time during the address allocation phase. This method proposes in particular that a list associating the serial numbers of the devices and the MAC address allocated be stored at the level of the central device for allocating addresses. It is also proposed that a cataloguing request be sent, serving to allocate the MAC address prior to the sending of a communication frame.
