Powerline Communications is the proposed ISO/OSI layer 1 and 2 technology of the ISO/IEC 15118 joint working group for the Vehicle-to-Grid Communication Interface in case of conductive charging. This paper introduces a test bed for analyzing PLC in the context of V2G communication. It presents measurement results and first experiences being made for broadband and narrowband PLC over the control pilot line of the charging cable. The analysis focuses on available application layer data rates, the time domain of the control pilot signal and PLC's impact on the resulting reliability of the charging state recognition according to IEC 61851-1.
