Power line communications (PLC) has attracted considerable attention for supporting smart grid applications. Since it reuses the existing grid infrastructure, it offers cost advantages over alternative communications methods and gives electric utilities control over the communications medium. Furthermore, the "through-the-grid" property of PLC extends its possible use beyond mere communications. Since the PLC signals are bound to travel through the power grid, they can also be used for… CONTINUE READING
