PLC Impulsive Noise in Industrial Zone: Measurement and Characterization

Trung H. Tran, Dung D. Do, and Tue H. Huynh

Abstract—Noise in PLC is of relatively complex structure of which the most important component is the asynchronous impulsive noise. Based on measurements realized in an industrial zone, this paper shows the heavy tail phenomenon observed in experimental measures. Consequently, the alpha stable model is the most natural to be used in describing the statistics of PLC impulsive noise in industrial zones. Furthermore, the inter-arrival time is of Pareto distribution while the duration of impulses follows a mixed exponential distribution. All parameters of the alpha stable model as well as the Pareto parameters and the mixed exponents are statistically estimated. The variation of these parameters with time is also discussed.
