Utilities
Home Grid is the commercial companion group for G.hn
Worldwide industry representation
Corinex is Chair of the AMI Working Group for this impressive new
standard with mandate to:
1.
Develop Clean Tech product standards for devices with
G.hn technology. These standards will be used to access
Clean Tech properties of the technology;
2.
Lab testing and certification process to verify those
properties;
3.
Establish methods of calculation of the carbon offsets for
devices having Clean Tech properties

Integrated Ripple Control System
Corinex- BPL specific features

The module has a broadcast address
The module is able to accept a broadcast
(e.g. a telegram for everybody- only right
ones react)
Reaction for telegram if address part is OK
is: change of tariff/output, change of virtual
output change of limiter, change of
disconnector, etc.
Similar actions as above enabled in TOU
Above actions are enabled by unicast and
single address command
A possibility to operate so called “virtual
relay- e.g. home automation” (nice to have)

BPL Network Architecture in CEZ deployment
The BPL network on low voltage is connected to the CEZ 3G WAN for
backhaul to central servers

Reading Conditions:
• Time Out 20s per read
• Max 5 Retry per Read
CEZ has measured the performance of meter reading to ensure it meets/exceeds
the requirements for their smart grid applications

Broadband Implementation available for MDM
The deployment in Vrchlabí was chosen to trial the broadband
technology for smart grid applications
Example -Trafo TU 848
AMM Topology
CEZ is piloting new broadband over powerline technology to the meter, which
achieved high bandwidth and reliability for smart grid applications

Pardubice Deployment
Pardubice 2012
PA_0619
Deployment without Repeaters – Q1 2012
Average meter reading success rate of 99.705%
without repeaters
Deployment Approach in 3 steps:
PA_0637
PA_0087
 1108 single phase meters
 112 three phase meters
 1220 total meters
1. Planning and Hardware Installation - Completed
by CEZ without assistance from Corinex.
2. Network Optimization - Accomplished by
Corinex in less than 2 days:
• Only 1.6% meters not reporting
• Consider this step closed and will return
after the CEZ 60% test
3. Clean up and 100% connectivity – Connected
the remaining 1-2% in February
BPL has superior connectivity and performance to any other PLC deployments

BPL to the meter: known and unknown
PROVEN
■ BPL technology has an unparalleled reading performance in areas where tested
■ Easy to deploy
■ Cost comparable with narrow band solution in absolute terms, and hundreds
times lower in price per Mb
■ Technology is supported by strongest silicon vendors (TI, Marvell, Intel).
■ In various market segments: EV, SmartGrid, to the meter.
OPEN
■ It is a new technology. One needs to better understand what it cannot do.
■ Solution can be further enhanced, benefiting from the speed and reliability of the
technology – it is not fully exploited yet.
■ To lower the risk it would be beneficial to expand number of meter vendors
adopting the technology (currently five in Europe)
■ To be able to scale up to 1 million meters + it would be good to have a
concentrator – it is on the roadmap and will be introduced in September 2012. It
will enable solution for up to 30 mil meters.
■ Vulnerable to the limited knowledge about its actual cost and performance
