A deterministic frequency-domain model for the indoor power line transfer function
The characterization of the transfer function of the power line (PL) channel is a nontrivial task that requires a truly interdisciplinary approach. Until recently, a common attribute and limitation of existing models for the PL channel transfer function lay in the phenomenological or statistical approach usually followed. This approach allows one to describe the channel only partially, e.g., as dominated by multipath-like effects, and prevents one from unveiling special properties of it. Multiconductor transmission line (MTL) theory was recently found by the authors to be a useful and accurate tool in modeling the PL transfer function while, at the same time, taking into account the wiring and grounding practices mandated by several regulatory bodies for commercial and residential premises. Crossing severs of abstraction and following a bottom-up approach, complex circuit-level models originating from MTL theory can be manipulated and represented in terms of cascaded two-port networks ...
