Abstract:
Texas Instruments has been developing Power Line Communication (PLC) technology to provide a form of communication for worldwide applications. By utilizing power grids within an infrastructure, it is possible to transmit a signal through the existing power lines such as a network would. Transmission of data within the electrical grid proves to be inherently noisy, thus compromising any information that is sent over the network. In order to provide a reliable platform of communication, frequency and impedance variation needs to be analyzed in order to provide proper development into PLC solutions. Within the scope of this project an analytical tool was developed to provide engineers with a method to determine impedance and frequency variations. Analysis and testing has been conducted to ensure the device satisfies the design requirements.
