In this paper mathematician K. M. Brown's method is used to solve load-flow problems. The method is particularly effective for solving ill-conditioned nonlinear algebraic equations. It is a variation of Newton's method incorporating Gaussian elimination in such a way that the most recent information is always used at each step of the algorithm; similar to(More)
In this paper, we investigate the feasibility of In-Band Full-Duplexing (IBFD) for Broadband Power Line Communication (BB-PLC) systems, to potentially double the throughput and spectral efficiency. IBFD accomplishes this through simultaneous bidirectional communication over the same powerline in the same frequency band, by applying echo cancellation (EC) to(More)
In this paper, we introduce in-band full duplexing (IBFD) for broadband power line communication (BB-PLC) systems. Inspired by the use of IBFD in digital subscriber lines, Ethernet, cable communication, and recently in wireless communication, we investigate the constraints and requirements for a successful IBFD implementation in BB-PLC. We propose a(More)
Turbo codes are attractive compared with Low Density Parity Check (LDPC) codes for Forward Error Correction (FEC) applications mainly due to their superior performance, especially at low Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) such as are common in Powerline channels. For example, IEEE 1901-FFT PHY used the Turbo coding scheme defined in the HomePlug AV standards.(More)
We address the issue of electromagnetic interference between power line communication (PLC) and non-PLC services by using full-duplex spectrum sensing for cognitive PLC. Contemporary broadband PLC (BB-PLC) standards allow PLC devices to dynamically use idle spectra that are allotted to non-PLC services, like broadcast radio. Traditional spectrum sensing(More)
In this paper, we present an all-analog echo cancellation solution to achieve in-band full-duplex (IBFD) operation in broadband power line communications (BB-PLC). The performance of active digital interference cancellation, as proposed previously for IBFD BB-PLC, is limited by distortion and quantization noise introduced by the analog-to-digital converter(More)
In this paper, we introduce a new scheme called Mutual Preamble Detection (MPD) to reduce the collision recovery time in broadband power line communication (BB-PLC) networks. Although latest BB- PLC products deliver a physical layer data rate of over 1000 Mbps, this is not efficiently translated into the medium access control (MAC) layer throughput due to(More)
A new concept of Flexible AC Transmission system (FACTS) brought radical changes in the power system operation and control. A new technique using FACTS devices linked to the improvements in semiconductor technology opens new opportunities for controlling power and enhancing the usable capacity of existing transmission lines. The Unified Power Flow(More)
In this paper, we advocate implementing carrier sense multiple access with collision detection (CSMA/CD) in the broadband power line communication (BB-PLC) standard, G.hn, and show the gain in data rate obtained over carrier sense multiple access with collision avoidance (CSMA/CA). The use of CSMA/CD is made feasible due to the recent implementation of(More)
