This manuscript reports the measurement results of narrowband signal propagation of PLC channels. In Japan, in-house wiring is single-phase three-wire, and each branch between an outlet of 100 V and the panel board is connected to one of two live conductors and the neutral. Thus a pair of outlets can be classified into three types: connected to different live conductors, connected to the same live conductors by different branches from the panel board, and on the same branch to the same live conductor. It is confirmed that the results of the measurements can be classified by these three types of paths. The results show that frequency responses of narrowband PLC channels are relatively smooth, compared with that of wideband PLC. It is also found that propagation loss in lower frequency range is larger than in higher frequency range. The time independence of narrowband PLC channels are confirmed when no electric appliance is connected to the same live conductor.
