Low voltage narrow band (NB) power-line communications (PLC) for future smart grid networks are considered in this paper. We investigate a cooperative communication scheme, where both transmissions from the source to the relays and from the relays to the destination use fountain codes. Because of the broadcast property of the PLC channel, intermediate nodes(More)
This paper studies the Power Line Communications (PLC) and tackles the problem of criss-cross noise. In the literature, it is proposed to use Reed-Solomon code concatenated with convolutional code associated with an interleaver. For instance in the context of smart grid, some standards like G3 and IEEE 1901.2 use this scheme. However, the narrowband(More)
—This paper describes a novel approach for combining Luby Transform (LT) codes and Network Coding (NC) in the context of PowerLine Communications (PLC) smart grid networks. Multihop transmissions of LT-encoded data on PLC networks are considered and algorithms to combine data at relay nodes are proposed. Without the need to decode and then re-encode the(More)
