Abstract : In this thesis, we are interested in a wide-area PLC (Power Line Communication) network to provide a communication infrastructure for monitoring and control of energy distribution and consumption. This work has been carried out as a part of REMPLI (Real-time Energy Management via Power Line and Internet) European project and resulted in the definition of REMPLI PLC. For achieving high network performance and real-time data transfer using medium voltage and low voltage electricity grids, major problems such as dynamic packet routing, quality of service management and real-time event reporting are addressed. We designed an efficient routing protocol to cope with dynamic electricity grid topology changes and to relay packets to reach the destination. REMPLI PLC performance is evaluated using simulations and complemented by analytic studies. It is proved that most of the application requirements can be satisfied by REMPLI PLC. We proposed and implemented a new traffic dispatcher providing differentiated quality of service for applications. Based on ALOHA protocol, some variants have been designed and evaluated for enabling efficient real-time event notification.
