—For several years, wireless communication systems have been developed for train to infrastructure communication needs related to railway or mass transit applications. The systems should be able to operate in specific environments, such as tunnels. In this context, specific radio planning tools have to be developed to optimize system deployment. Realistic(More)
—Modeling of radio channel behavior is very important for digital communication. It is the reason why several propagation models have been implemented to take into account the electromagnetic phenomena inherent to the radio wave channel. So, among these models is the family of statistical distributions, fast in computation time, to describe channel fast(More)
—Modern subways operation relies on wireless systems based on IEEE802.11x modems deployed inside tunnels. Constraints on robustness and needs for high data rates led to the use of MIMO techniques. In order to evaluate performance of MIMO systems in dynamic configurations with moving trains, it is mandatory to develop adequate dynamic channel model. In this(More)
To satisfy the smart grid electrical network, communication systems in high-voltage substations have to be installed in order to control equipments. Considering that those substations were not necessarily designed for adding communication networks, one of the most appropriate solutions is to use wireless sensor network (WSN). However, the high voltage(More)
is parked between the transmitter and the receiver. In this paper, two different strategies are investigated to model the MIMO channel using the Kronecker and the Weichselberger correlation based channel models. The first one is to model the MIMO channel using a single model over the total tunnel length. The second one takes into account the correlation at(More)
