The purpose of the present work is to evaluate the application of space-time block codes to the transmission of digital data over the power-line communication channel (PLC). Data transmitted over the power-line channel is usually corrupted by impulsive noise. In this work we analyse
the performance of space-time block codes in this type of environment and show that a significant performance gain can be achieved at almost no processing expense.
