This report addresses two project development phases. Phase 1 covers progress in the initial testing of an OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) based Broadband over Power Line (BPL) system for a 69 kV transmission line and its successful deployment over a 0.77 mile line. Phase 2 covers the continued development and field testing of high voltage (HV)-BPL systems and work performed to extend its operating range.
