Introduction Counter winding - myths and reality

The purpose of this series of articles is not the desire to teach you to rewind the counters. Rather, on the contrary, I would like to warn you against this if possible. If you are reading this article, then you already have a computer, and most likely not the worst. And I’m sure that ten bucks for electricity can be paid by everyone.
For some reason, to drink or lose half the salary is normal, but to pay for electricity does nothing. And the people with maniacal persistence are typing the words "wind off, reel electric meter" and the like. And if there is demand, there is also supply. And there were sites telling terrible military secrets .

The layout of these sites is usually the same. First, “free ways” are published with tips like “hammer a nail into an electric meter and it will stop spinning”. Most of them, as a rule, cannot bring anything but trouble, but for the sake of justice it must be said that they come across quite graceful ones. Working methods apply only to obsolete induction meters. And if it only concerned this, I would not even take up this cycle. The natural introduction of modern electronic meters and protective shutdown devices (RCDs) would eliminate the problem naturally.
But these guys don't stop at that. They say: “Send us 10, 20, (as I have seen even 500 !!!) dollars and we will send you the surest way that will force everything that can spin backward or at least stop it. Or such an option - send ... bucks and we'll send you a way that without any change in the scheme will take into account half the energy. "
And no matter - the electronic meter or electronic.
All this is nonsense. The analysis of the most popular and walking on the Internet methods will be given below. I tried to systematize all the methods, and with a certain tension of thought you can analyze the newly emerging ones. And if you send me 1 (one) dollar, I will tell you why they do not work :) ).
The presentation is constructed as follows - first, the theoretical aspects of electricity metering and the arrangement of electricity meters are described. And then on the basis of these calculations an analysis of existing methods is carried out. After reading this cycle, I think you will understand that what is working has been repeatedly posted on the net for a long time, and for the most part, paid methods do not work. Or they work only with a certain model (usually obsolete) under very specific conditions.
Immediately I warn you that there will be no concrete numbers and recommendations in the diagrams - it’s rubbish on the net and so full of who needs it - they will look for it themselves.
