In literature we can find several papers that analyze the characteristics of the powerlines to data transmission, noises, and employed techniques in communication by powerlines. Almost all the papers that study the HomePlug standard make tests of protocol performance. Some of those papers make comparative tests between the medium access control sublayer (MAC) of the HomePlug and the IEEE 802.11 MAC. This work complements the evaluations found in the literature, having as its aim the study of HomePlug LAN’s, in respect of the performance as a function of the electrical demand. The homeplug network throughput was analyzed, by considering several situations of electrical consumption.
