But there are also some difficulties in the use of power line channels. they do not need any special infrastructure (such as base stations). In Europe.1. The band is divided into four subbands called A. C. Power line communication (PLC) systems have a long history. This has caused a lot of manufactures to develop their products. communication facilities are needed for the medium voltage (MV) and low voltage (LV) power levels. The standards of powerline communications are divided into the following two groups. and D is for the general use. various impedance. therefore. However. all countries that belong to CENELEC organization have to fit EN 50065-1 that regulates powerline communication. It restricts both the maximum signal amplitude (134 dBµV ) and the frequency rang (3 kHz to 148. The future ETSI TS 101 867 recommendation will regulate the transmission over mains used for Powerline Telecommunications (PLC) devices oriented to home Internet access. EN 50062 does not specify the type of modulation that the user has to use. power line communication systems offer several advantages.1 Overview of Power Line Communications A power line system is used not only for the transmission of power but also as a medium for data communication and the control of electric appliances. loading effects of electrical appliances. and so on.5 kHz) composed of the four subbands shown in Fig 1. they are well established on high voltage (HV) power lines for the measurement of loading and automation.

Hardware design and implementation are shown in Chapter 5. whereas LV system is based on fast frequency hoping spread spectrum (SS-FFH) modulation. it implies that data rate is decreased and the bandwidth efficiency is low. 1. In Chapter 2. Direct Sequence spread spectrum (DSSS) modulation scheme is also used in [3. 3 . Although spread spectrum techniques provide processing gain.2 Outlines This thesis describes the OFDM system architecture for the implementation. we adopt OFDM technique according to HomePlug 1. and Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) has higher noise sensibility than the spread spectrum modulations. the channel characteristic is described.

The phenomenon means that signal propagation does not only have a direct line-of-sight path between transmitter and receiver. These reflections can leads to attenuation rates of 40 dB/km or more [11].

the destroyed bits can be reconstructed with proper forward error correction coding. 3. we only focus on the physical layer and discuss the system performance.1 Basic Principle of OFDM There are several advantages of the OFDM system as compared to traditional single carrier or spread spectrum systems: It achieves a much higher bandwidth efficiency than spread spectrum systems. For example. It is more effective against intersymbol interference (ISI) or group delay distortion cause by the transmission channel than narrowband system because of a longer symbol duration. It allows a flexible allocation and use in a given channel bandwidth. With the flexible choice..0 Spec. In this thesis. Because jammers destroy a few carriers.0 Standard Medium access control (MAC) and physical layer specifications are composed in the Homeplug 1. Furthermore. It is robust for narrowband interference. But there are a few disadvantages of the OFDM system in particular: 10 . it is possible to use two or more noncontiguous subbands for the transmission of a data stream.0 Standard Chapter 3 Homeplug 1. ISI can be completely eliminated by inserting a cyclic prefix between the symbols. the available signal to noise ratio can be allocated optimally for each carrier.Chapter 3 Homeplug 1. It can be made robust against impulsive noise with interleaver and forward error correction coding scheme. Each of the carriers can be modulated individually with different modulation schemes.

several sequential streams of data are transmitted simultaneously with individual sub-band of the entire available bandwidth. The complex values are modulated in a baseband by the inverse-fast Fourier transform (IFFT) and converted back to serial data for transmission. guard time.0 Standard It is more sensitive to inter-channel interference (ICI) resulted from carrier frequency offset and clock frequency offset than a single carrier system. modulation type per subcarrier and type of forward error correction coding. such as 16 QAM or 32 QAM. we can insert an one-tap equalizer between signal demapper and FFT to correct channel distortion. Furthermore. The tap coefficients of the filter are estimated depended on channel information. Fig. The complexity of an OFDM receiver is higher than that of a simple FSK receiver.1) where X [k ] ≡ k data symbol f k ≡ k ∆f . In OFDM system design. because of high peak to average power ratio of an MCM system. 3. Transmitter output back off is higher than a single carrier system. symbol duration. we will have th 1 x[n] = x(nTs ) = N ∑ X [k ]e k =0 N −1 j 2π kn N (3. which illustrates that the incoming serial data is first converted from serial to parallel and grouped into X bits to feed signal mapper to determine complex value of the signal constellation of the corresponding subcarrier.2) where Ts ≡ sampling time. 11 . The receiver performs the inverse process of the transmitter to obtain the information. A Cyclic prefix is inserted between symbols to avoid intersymbol interference (ISI) and interchannel interference (ICI) caused by multipath. In a parallel data transmission system.1 is typical FFT-based OFDM system. symbols are transmitted sequentially with the entire available bandwidth. The OFDM signal x(t ) is obtained by adding the N subcarriers modulated waveforms and given as 1 N −1 x(t ) = ∑ X [k ]e j 2π fk t N k =0 (3. In a conventional serial data system.Chapter 3 Homeplug 1.

The number of rows used is equal to 2 times the number of usable carriers per OFDM symbol. Both interleaver methods are illustrated below with an example in which all 84 carriers are usable. The first such matrix (of size up to 168x20) holds the first half of the DQPSK bits. The ROBO Interleaver adds redundancy and shall only be used to interleave data for ROBO modulation.7.

the OFDM signal in the time domain is multiplied by a raised cosine window to reduce the paper of out-of-channel energy. Finally. each logical bit at the input of the interleaver is represented with 4 bits at the output of the interleaver.9 and specifics is identified in Table 3. a 40 symbol PHY transmission block of up to 3360 bits can only hold up to 840 input bits. A shift is applied to the starting row between each read pass as specified in Table 3.

The coding gain obtained in the traditional coherent system is not the same as in the simulation system. We can find that BER of the DBPSK scheme is close to BER of the BPSK scheme.s. Its reason can be explained that the soft value that Viterbi decoder obtains in the simulation system is more incorrect than in the traditional coherent system. The reason of the difference of BER between both in ROBO scheme and in DBPSK scheme under an AWGN channel is explained that the effect of the phase provided by each subcarrier is not all absolutely positive. Fig. The reason is that the initial phases obtained from the preamble for some subcarriers are inaccurate.13 BER vs.
