    Power line communication technology receives today a renewed attention for a wide class of advanced applications and services, thanks to the advantage of using the existing electrical infrastructure, which requires only limited deployment costs. However, wires have been originally designed for power and not for data, and signal propagation is affected by several impairments such as impulsive noise... View full abstract»

  • Network Coding in the Link Layer for Reliable Narrowband Powerline Communications

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):1965 - 1977

    The wide availability of power distribution cables provides an interesting no-new-wires communication channel. However, its electrical characteristics make it a harsh environment for the data transmission purpose and prevent the deployment of services with high reliability requirements. This paper proposes and implements an OSI-Layer2 network coding-based cooperative scheme with the aim of improvi... View full abstract»

    Power-line communications are employed in home networking to provide easy and high-throughput connectivity. The IEEE 1901, the MAC protocol for power-line networks, employs a CSMA/CA protocol similar to that of 802.11, but is substantially more complex, which probably explains why little is known about its performance. One of the key differences between the two protocols is that whereas 802.11 onl... View full abstract»

    Newly available standards for broadband access using digital subscriber lines (DSLs) have a high degree of spectrum overlap with home networking technologies using broadband power line communications (BB-PLCs) and this overlap leads to electromagnetic compatibility issues that may cause performance degradation in DSL systems. This paper studies the characteristics of measured PLC-to-DSL interferen... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2633 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Power talk is a novel ultra narrow-band powerline communication (UNB-PLC) technique for communication among control units in MicroGrids (MGs). Unlike the existing UNB-PLC solutions, power talk does not require installation of additional dedicated communication hardware and, instead, uses only the power electronic converters through which the control units interface the common bus. This way the com... View full abstract»

    Power line communication (PLC) techniques present a no extra wire solution for the communication purpose in a smart grid due to the ubiquity and low cost. Moreover, the through-the-grid property of PLC has naturally extended its possible applications, including but not limited to the automatic meter reading, line quality monitoring, online diagnostics, and network tomography. To guarantee the perf... View full abstract»

    The multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technique is well known in the field of wireless communications, and has recently been proposed to increase the capacity of in-home power line communication (PLC) networks. MIMO PLC employs the protective earth in addition to the classical line and neutral wires to form a multi-sensor transmission channel. By considering the additional reception of common-...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2190 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The recent release of indoor power line communication (PLC) standards with multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) capabilities has led to the need for channel models that reflect the multiconductor nature of the grid. This paper proposes a model, based on the multiconductor transmission line theory, along with a random PLC channel generator operating in the frequency range from 1 to 100 MHz. Its di...
