This article presents the development of a monitoring and supervision system using power line communication technology and the data acquisition system. This was done by research and case study at laboratories of Faculdade SATC, using a web microserver with the power line to transmit and receive data through PLC (Power Line Communication) technology as a solution for remote monitoring. The variable to be controlled will be wind turbine temperature which for laboratory purposes was simulated by heating a resistor. After the prototype was made, tests were performed comparing the PLC technology and the LAN network in two different environments: residential and industrial. The network behavior was analyzed using a network analysis software in which a few parameters were established to represent network performance in sending and receiving data from the monitoring system. The data obtained by this study showed satisfactory results of the PLC technology compared to the LAN network, confirming the possibility of using this technology in remote monitoring systems, thus allowing increased reliability and operational convenience.
