A power line communication-based aircraft power distribution system may allow for both power line communication (PLC) technology and spread spectrum time domain reflectometry (SSTDR) technology to be utilized in aircraft power distribution systems to achieve key maintenance functions. Unlike conventional power distribution systems, which may, for example, use only SSTDR for fault detection, the present invention includes a hardware platform that may allow both the PLC and the SSTDR to be utilized in aircraft power distribution systems to achieve key main...
We claim: 1. A power distribution system comprising:at least one generator;at least one AC bus bar receiving power from the generator;at least one switch electrically connecting the AC bus bar to an AC load;an electric power control unit communicating with a main data bus; andat least two power line communication (PLC) tap points, each of the at least two PLC tap points communicating with the electric power control unit;wherein a signal sent between the at least two PLC tap points in the power distribution system is used to determine a wire integrity bet...
