Abstract

In this paper, we propose an initial acuisition method for channel synchronization on in-home broadband power line communication (PLC). It has been considered that the time fluctuation in the transfer function has been smaller than that in the noise on the in-home broadband PLC. However, we have observed that the extensively and rapidly time fluctuation across the whole frequency band appears in the in-home PLC at the half of power cycle intervals while connecting some switching power supply devices. Such largely and quickly time fluctuation makes the extensive degradation in performance of in-home PLC devices. Therefore, we should estimate the timing of time fluctuation and synchronize the in-home PLC systems with the estimated time fluctuation. We evaluate the performance of the proposed initial acquisition method under impulsive noise environments and investigate its feasibility for the real in-homePLC.
