NOISEEK: Detection of PLC perturbations of the electrical grid



PLC communications of Smart Meters through the electrical grid can fail due to excessive noise in the grid caused by local consumers.

Identifying these local noise sources is an effort and an unexpected cost for electrical service companies and causes nuisance for their customers (power outage).
