Abstract

This paper is focused on the possibility of employing narrow band power line communication (PLC) in medium voltage (MV) distribution networks. The topic is investigated by means of both simulations and experimental tests, which were carried out in the distribution network of Ustica Island. In detail, a two-way MV communication was tested between two secondary substations connected by an MV cable power line. Each substation has a by-pass connection at MV bus-bars and an MV/LV oil filled power transformer. In this paper, the MV and the PLC systems under test are described and the experimental tests are presented, which were carried out to evaluate the parameters of the simulation model. The aforesaid model is described and a comparison is shown between simulation and results of experiments, which were carried out in the presence of voltage net, i.e., 24 kV. Finally, the possibility is investigated of a reliable communication and the faster achievable bit-rate; the analysis is performed by means of further experimental results of several communication tests, which were carried out with different modulation techniques
