Abstract

Power line communications (PLC) has been popularly used for in-home networking in the broadband case, where a number of useful channel models exist. For narrowband PLC applicable to longer distances and smart grid communications, few measurement campaigns and channel models exist. In this paper, we aim to report on an anticipated measurement campaign, and its impact both on the construction of a suitable channel model as well as its application to a filter-bank based transmultiplexer, which can be optimally adjusted based on parameters informed by such channel measurements.
