LV-Beschreibung

Intendierte Lernergebnisse

Knowledge of PLC applications, standards, challenges and solutions for reliable communications over power line. Main differences w.r.t. wireless communication systems.

Lehrmethodik

Lectures and some simulation exercise using Matlab.

Inhalt/e

This class deals with Power Line Communication (PLC) systems, systems that convey information through the power delivery infrastructure. It covers the application scenarios of PLC (such as in-home, in-vehicle, and smart grids), channel characterization and modeling, PLC physical layer techniques, signal processing techniques in the context of PLC and the main aspects of the MAC layer. In more detail, the important topics of statistical channel and noise modeling will be illustrated. Similarities and differences with the wireless channel behavior and modeling will be discussed. The main challenges of physical layer design for both narrow-band (NB-PLC) and broad-band PLC (BB-PLC) to encompass the presence of channel attenuation and frequency selectivity, interference, and various noise sources will be addressed. In particular, focus will be given to single carrier modulation approaches, filter bank modulation approaches (as OFDM, DWMT, FMT) and ultra wide band techniques. The pros and cons of different transmission techniques will be analyzed and specific aspects that make PLC different from wireless communications will be emphasized. Some aspects related to the MAC protocols and signal processing for cooperative systems (as relaying) to enhance coverage and capacity will be presented. Finally, an overview of the main standards will be offered covering both NB-PLC and broad-band BB-PLC and explaining their intended use in different application scenarios.

Themen

  • History and evolution of Power Line Communication (PLC) technology
  • PLC applications.
  • Channel characterization: channel response, noise, interference.
  • Channel modeling: top-down approach and statistical modeling.
  • Principles of transmission line theory (TLT).
  • Channel modeling: bottom-up approach using TLT.
  • Background and impulsive noise models.
  • Multiple input multiple output (MIMO) PLC.
  • Physical layer techniques used in PLC: single carrier modulation, filter bank modulation, ultra wide band modulation.
  • Media access control for PLC.
  • Resource allocation algorithms.
  • Relaying and cooperative schemes in the context of PLC.
  • PLC standards and protocols: IEEE P1901, IEEE P1901.2, ITU G.hn, ITU G.hnem, PRIME, G3.

Lehrziel

The objective of the class is to gain experience about the emerging technology referred to as power line communication (PLC), PLC applications, standards, transmission principles, channel and noise characteristics, main PHY and MAC algorithms. The class provides the knowledge and the tools to allow an informed use of the technology, as well as to allow the design and development of PLC based solutions.

Erwartete Vorkenntnisse keine Anmeldevoraussetzung
