In the present age of Information Technology, the present focus is both on creation as well as dispersion of information. In order to be able to reach the end users for the provision of information, the popular technologies currently being used include telephone wires, Ethernet cabling, fiber optic, wireless and satellite technologies. However each has its limitations of cost and availability to reach the maximum number of users. Power line carrier communications refers to the concept of transmitting information using the main power line as a communications channel. This project is motivated by an interest in the applicability of power line carrier communication techniques towards home automation. The advantage of using power-line as the data transmission medium is that every building and home is already connected to the power grid. The Power Line Communication Systems use the existing AC electrical wiring as the network medium to provide high speed network access points almost anywhere there is an AC outlet.
