Abstract

The Power line carrier communication (PLCC) is in existence for many years but still is an active research area, mainly because it offers economical, geographical and technical advantage as it uses the electric grid for transmitting the data. To reduce the consumption of carbon-based fuel for power generation and its impact to the environment, the world is moving towards an efficient distributed energy production and management system called the smart grid. In smart grid the requirement of a consistent communication setup is very high, as it requires two-way information flow for efficient management of distributed energy resources in order to provide quality power to the consumers. In smart grid architecture, as many automation, controlling and monitoring systems are interconnected, the security is another challenging issue. Among different communication technologies, PLCC is the only alternate which could be compared to the wireless technology due to the duple usage of power line to transfer both power and data. In this context, PLCC is gaining wide acceptance as it can contribute in establishing smart grids in both developed and developing nations. In this paper we provide an overview of PLCC technology, power line channel modelling, coding schemes, modulation techniques and the application of PLCC.
