Abstract:
In Part I of this work, travelling-wave modelling of uniform multi-conductor transmission line networks was analytically established with direct applicability to narrowband transmission, covering any network formed of lossy (in the general case), diagonalisable uniform multi-conductor transmission lines of either distinct or degenerate eigenvalues. As the whole work applies especially in the field of Power-Line Communications, in Part II, a validating experimental paradigm is first provided using a common cable type for indoor power electric networks. Then, direct applicability to narrowband transmission is addressed, along with potential expandability towards wideband signalling. A comparative evaluation with other existing methods of time-domain modelling is also included and relevant directions for future research are suggested.
