Notice: As of 2014 and for the forthcoming years, the publication frequency/periodicity of NAUN Journals is adapted to the 'continuously updated' model. What this means is that instead of being separated into issues, new papers will be added on a continuous basis, allowing a more regular flow and shorter publication times. The papers will appear in reverse order, therefore the most recent one will be on top.

Abstract: There are a lot of noises in the low-voltage power line communication (LVPLC) channel, which seriously damages the LVPLC system. The noise in the low voltage power line can be divided into general background noise and random pulse noise. These two noises will cause serious interference to the communication process based on LVPLC, reduce the signal-to-noise ratio of LVPLC system, and the communication quality cannot meet the requirements. To ensure the communication quality, this paper uses the time-frequency peak filtering algorithm to eliminate the noise in the LVPLC in the experimental environment. Firstly, this paper studies the noise characteristics based on the measured LVPLC channel noise. Secondly, the memory noise model is established, and the time-frequency peak filtering algorithm is used to eliminate the noise. In order to analyze the denoising effect of time-frequency peak filtering algorithm, the algorithm is simulated. Finally, the application effect of the algorithm is verified by experimental test. The simulation and application results show that the time-frequency peak filtering algorithm can improve the signal-to-noise ratio by about 5 dB in the actual noise environment of LVPLC, which can adapt to the changeable environment of LVPLC channel noise, and has good noise suppression effect and good application value. The application in the solar panel data transmission system shows that the time-frequency peak filtering algorithm can meet the communication performance requirements of the laboratory, reduce the bit error rate by about 2 % under the general background noise interference, and reduce the bit error rate by about 3 % under the pulse interference environment, and improve the transmission quality of LVPLC system.
