In smart grid research and particularly Offshore Wind Farms (OWFs), employing wireless data communications as a reliable technology for Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) communication between wind towers is of great interest. This paper introduces the Ultra-Wideband (UWB) communication system based on Pulse Position Modulation (PPM) for this intention. In this work, the UWB link is modeled in WOFs and performance of the UWB link subject to several metrics such as range-data rate, range-bit error rate (BER), and path loss are systematically and arithmetically assessed. The results prove UWB system as a promising inexpensive, but high performance approach for wireless SCADA communications in OWFs.
