Power Line Communications: Theory and Applications for Narrowband and Broadband Communications over Power Lines
Hendrik C. Ferreira, Lutz Lampe, John Newbury, Theo G. Swart
John Wiley & Sons, Jul 22, 2011 - Technology & Engineering - 536 pages
Power Line Communications (PLC) is a promising emerging technology, which has attracted much attention due to the wide availability of power distribution lines. This book provides a thorough introduction to the use of power lines for communication purposes, ranging from channel characterization, communications on the physical layer and electromagnetic interference, through to protocols, networks, standards and up to systems and implementations. With contributions from many of the most prominent international PLC experts from academia and industry, Power Line Communications brings together a wealth of information on PLC specific topics that provide the reader with a broad coverage of the major developments within the field.
