  author={W. D. A. S. Rodrigo and H. K. I. S. Lakmal and N. S. Roshani and Sbrgk Samarakoon and Saneth Samararatne},
Most of the developing countries are moving in to smart meters equipped with prepayment facility to measure electricity in order to reduce the financial losses faced by utilities due to consumer reluctance to make bill payments on time. Prepaid smart meters enable consumers to effectively manage their electricity usage. But the main drawback of the currently available prepaid meters is their high cost which makes them infeasible for developing countries. This paper is based on a final year…
