TECNALIA Webinar – Noise problems in PLC Communications: How to prevent them to optimize your PLC Network

On May 12th, PRIME Member TECNALIA organized a webinar on “Noise problems in PLC Communication: How to prevent them to optimize your PLC Network”. The webinar was a complete success with 56 attendees connected from Europe, Latin America, China and the Middle East.

Power Line Communications (PLC) are used widely all around the world using the electrical network for Power DistributionThe selection of a specific technology and the resolution of problems in field must be based in a broad knowledge of the electrical disturbances that each network can support.

Basic concepts of the PLC communications were explained in addition to the methodologies that can be helpful to minimize the potential PLC communication disruptions (and associated costs) due to electrical noises. This webinar is addressed to professionals related to Smart Metering projects (utilities, manufacturers, consultants,…) and technology selection responsibles, pilot project managers and deployment coordinators in systems with potential use of PLC; manufacturers of electrical devices who want to incorporate noise detection methodologies in their designs.


  • Basic concepts of PLC and electrical disturbances
