Integration of a Smart Meter with the Brazilian Broadband PLC System

This work outlines the integration of a smart metering device with the novel Brazilian broadband powerline communication (PLC) system, which was recently developed t o fulfill the needs and demands related to smart grid communication and digital divide. With this regards, we discuss the developed hardware for interfacing with the smart metering device as well as the programs designed to collect the data which was transmitted by the smart meter using a PLC modem. A field trial was carried out in a low-income gated community and the attained results show that this integration can effectively fulfill throughput demands related to smart metering.
