Power line communication (PLC) is mostly intended for carrying not merely the electric power but also the data over the conductors and as the application amends so do the need to alter the technologies, like the prerequisite to alter the technology in case of home automation and for internet access and in order to produce a adequate level of separation among them, they are ordinarily differentiated by means of frequency alteration. In general, the transformer existent at the substation generally prevents the propagation of signal. Data rates and the distance differ in accordance with power line communication standards. For the power line communication various authors or researchers presented their views and technology. In this paper, we present the literature survey on the power line communication technology.
