Power line communication (PLC) is a technology that enables sending communication data
over electric power cables. Power line communication is used at different frequency bands
depending on signal transmission characteristics of the power wiring and the application
for which it is being used. PLC’s areas of application are across voltage ranges in both -
power transmission and distribution. In this regard, the utilities are favoring
implementation of the PLC systems in their substation automation projects.

In addition to this, the medium and low voltages area of application is seeing an
uptrend with respect to adoption of PLC solution as cost-effective and, in turn,
favorable. Typical application in medium voltage range is smart grid and in low voltage is
home automation and networking. PLC has its advantages and disadvantages in the different
environments it is used in, but the fact that it does not require any external wiring
infrastructure keeps pushing it to the forefront.

Apart from these applications in smart grids, home networking, and M2M communications
in the Neighborhood area network (NAN) and Home area network (HAN), PLC also has a few
niche long-haul applications in areas like irrigation, internal automobile communication,
railroad and transport applications, etc.
