Let us first look at the abstract

Broadband power-line communication using turbo codes and orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) is considered in this paper. It is shown that the performance of conventional turbo coded OFDM systems degrades substantially due to the impulsive noise interference commonly encountered in power-lines. A robust turbo coded OFDM transceiver applying an iterative noise cancellation technique is proposed. Simulation results show that the proposed scheme is robust to impulsive noise while maintaining excellent performance in Gaussian noise.

As seen above, in this paper, my co-authors and I proposed a new transceiver to be used in power lines for communication purposes. The significance of the method is that it uses orthogonal frequency division multiplexing or for short OFDM in order to mitigate the effect of frequency-selective fading that usually plagues power lines. The paper is published in IEICE Electronics Express or for short ELEX.
