This paper is focused on the possibility of employingnarrow band power line communication (PLC) in mediumvoltage (MV) distribution networks. The topic is investigatedby means of both simulations and experimental tests, whichwere carried out in the distribution network of Ustica Island.In detail, a two-way MV communication was tested between twosecondary substations connected by an MV cable power line.Each substation has a by-pass connection at MV bus-bars andan MV/LV oil filled power transformer. In this paper, the MV andthe PLC systems under test are described and the experimentaltests are presented, which were carried out to evaluate theparameters of the simulation model. The aforesaid model isdescribed and a comparison is shown between simulation andresults of experiments, which were carried out in the presence ofvoltage net, i.e., 24 kV. Finally, the possibility is investigated ofa reliable communication and the faster achievable bit-rate; theanalysis is performed by means of further experimental resultsof several communication tests, which were carried out withdifferent modulation techniques
