In this paper, the impact of colored noise on the ultimate performance limits of broadband single carrier power line communication (PLC) systems is analyzed in terms of information rate (IR). As a case study, the IR analysis is applied to a high voltage (HV) PLC channel affected by corona noise as a particular type of colored noise: in order to complete the theoretical results, the bit error rate (BER) performance of a state-of-the-art PLC system with few low-density parity-check (LDPC)-coded schemes are also considered.
