The aim of the paper is to show how narrowband power line communications (NB-PLCs) can be a valid solution for medium voltage grids. Advantages and drawbacks of this solution are analyzed, starting from some experimental communication results, which were carried out on the mediumpower system networks of the islands of Ustica and Favignana, in the presence of the net voltage. Furthermore, somecommunication architectures and hardware prototypes based on NB-PLCs are proposed for different smart grids applications.
