Abstract

This second paper presents the numerical evaluation of the statistical hybrid model for a number of indicative overhead medium-voltage (OV MV) and underground medium-voltage (UN MV) broadband over power lines (BPL) topologies. In essence, this paper assesses the effect of a number of key of factors already reported in [1], such as the distribution power grid type, BPL topology class, coupling scheme, channel attenuation statistical distribution, and injected power spectral density (IPSD) limits, on the computed capacity ranges of the statistical hybrid model. For the assessment of the different channel attenuation statistical distributions, the graphical analysis and the proposed metrics of capacity percentage change and average absolute capacity percentage change are demonstrated while two rules of thumb estimating the fidelity results are also proposed.
