Software Defined Channel Sounder for Power Line Communications

Alonso, Damián; Gavilán, Jesús; Dostert, Klaus

Abstract: Most power line channel sounders are based on expensive lab instruments. This work presents an alternative based on software defined radio platforms. These can be later also employed as communication modems, decreasing costs and deployment times. We implemented and evaluated two channel sounding techniques: frequency hopping and sliding correlator. The results suggest that frequency hopping might be a better candidate for power line channels due to the expected low signal-to-noise ratio.
