Introduction Counters winding - myths and reality

The purpose of this series of articles is not at all the desire to train you to unwind the counters back. Even more likely on the contrary, I would like to warn as much as possible from this. If you are reading this article, then you already have a computer, and probably not the worst. And I'm sure that ten bucks for electricity to pay in the state of each.
Why then drink or lose polzarplata - this is normal, and pay for electricity - in any way. And the people with maniacal perseverance are typing the words "rewind, roll the electric meter" and the like. And if there is demand, there is an offer. And there were websites that tell a terrible military secret .

The scheme of building these sites is usually the same. First, publish "free ways" with tips like "hammer a nail into the electricity meter and it stops spinning." Most of them, as a rule, can not bring anything except troubles, but for the sake of justice it must be said that they come across quite elegant too. Working methods concern only obsolete induction counters. And if the matter concerned only this, I would not even undertake this cycle. The natural introduction of modern electronic meters and residual current devices (RCDs) would remove the problem naturally.
But these guys do not stop there. They say: "Send us 10, 20, (like once I saw even 500 !!!) dollars and we'll send you the most-right way, which will make everything spin back, at least stop it. such an option - send ... bucks and we will send you a method that without taking any changes in the scheme will take into account half the energy. "
And without a difference - an electronic counter or not an electronic one.
All this is nonsense. The analysis of the most popular and walking methods on the Internet will be given below. All the methods I tried to systematize, and with some strain of thought you can analyze the newly emerging. And if you send me 1 (one) dollar, I'll tell you why they do not work :) ).
The presentation is structured as follows: first, theoretical aspects of electricity metering and the arrangement of electric energy meters are described. And then, based on these calculations, the existing methods are analyzed. After reading this cycle, I think you will understand that what works, has long been published on the web, and paid methods do not work for the most part. Or they work only with a certain model (usually obsolete) under very specific conditions.
Immediately I warn that in the schemes there will be no specific figures and recommendations - in the network it is rubbish and so full, who needs - will look for themselves.
