Virtual Indicative Broadband over Power Lines Topologies for Respective Subclasses by Adjusting Channel Attenuation Statistical Distribution Parameters of Statistical Hybrid Models (Class Maps) – Part 2: Numerical Results for the Overhead and Underground Medium-Voltage Power Grids

Athanasios G. Lazaropoulos

Abstract


With reference to the initial statistical hybrid model (iSHM) and modified statistical hybrid model (mSHM), the theory of the definition procedure of new virtual indicative distribution BPL topologies by appropriately adjusting the channel attenuation statistical distributions (CASDs) parameters of iSHM and mSHM has been presented in [1]. In this paper, the results of the definition procedure for the OV and UN MV BPL networks are first presented through the prism of the proposed class maps of iSHM and mSHM.
