This paper outlines a novel power line communication (PLC) system that was specified, designed, and prototyped to address the features of low-voltage and outdoor Brazilian electric power grids when the frequency band between 1.7 and 50 MHz, which complies with the Brazilian regulation for broadband PLC, is considered. The proposed PLC system is constituted(More)
This work aim at presenting a preliminary analysis of additive noises on outdoor and low voltage electric power grid when the frequency band between 1.7 and 100 MHz is considered. These noises were obtained during a measurement campaign carried out in a Brazilian suburban area comprising a low-income community. The statistical analysis in the time and(More)
A new Multiple-Input Single-Output Powerline Communications (MISO PLC) transmission scheme is proposed as an extension to the conventional Single-Input Single-Output (SISO) PLC transmission scheme to achieve high data rate with diversity. This scheme is called Enhanced-PLC scheme (EPLC). A Space-Time (ST) coding is employed at the transmitter terminal. In(More)
