Noise Amplitude Distribution of Impulsive Noise From Measurements in a Power Substation

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Impulsive noise has the potential to degrade the performance and reliability of wireless communications systems. Such noise, which is especially prevalent in high-voltage electricity substations, has discouraged the deployment of wireless technologies for operational purposes in the Electricity Supply Industry (ESI). A model of impulsive noise specific to electricity substations would allow the assessment of risk associated with such deployment for monitoring and control functions. Much effort has already been devoted to the measurement of impulsive noise in a variety of physical environments, spanning various frequency bands, with a view to assessing its impact on a range of wireless communication technologies.
