Analysis and Theoretical Evaluation of Iraqi High Voltage Power Transmission Line

Abstract

The Powerline Communications (PLC) technology allows datatransmission through electrical wires. Thus the electrical wiring will representa data transmission channel conformable to the physical layer of the opensystem interconnection (OSI) model. In this work, the specifications of the Iraqielectrical network were used to model a high-voltage transmission line using atransmission (ABCD) matrix and use it as a communication channel fortransmitting data within a narrow band (30-500). The transfer function of thesuggested model was derived and its performance analysis was performed toevaluate the Line length effect, load impedance ZL and the source impedance ZSon the channel frequency response. This analysis was done with the help ofMatlab16a simulator program.
