Abstract:
Power line communication systems (PLC) are becoming prominent in home and personal environments for local area networks and broadband power line internet access due to its attractive deployment features and high data rates. To mitigate the harsh condition of power line channel and effectively utilize the power line bandwidth, robust physical (PHY) and medium access control (MAC) protocols are required.  Home Plug is most commonly used technology for PLC, which defines its MAC based on CSMA/CA and random backoff algorithm. Similar to 802.11 DCF, the MAC efficiency of this protocol degrades when the network is congested with increasing number of stations. A comprehensive study of IEEE 802.11 DCF based adaptive backoff mechanism and further investigate their efficiency to compare with the performance of Home Plug MAC has been made in this project. Furthermore, the optimum constant contention window (CW) for the Home Plug 1.0 MAC based on a discrete time homogeneous Markov Chain model was investigated and simulated. Since the constant contention window based MAC protocol works with the knowledge of number of contending stations, an estimation mechanism was implemented to achieve a high MAC efficiency. By using the deferral counter which is built in the current Home Plug MAC, an accurate tracking of number of users in the channel has been accomplished.
