The rapid growth of renewable energy applications increases the complexity of the system, followed by the increase of using fast switching converters in the smart grid. Thus, the probability of electromagnetic interference between the system elements may cause a lot of communication problems between smart grid elements. On the other hand, the use of a SiC-based converter gets a great interest due to its fast switching capability and loss reduction. This paper focuses on studying the difference between the influence of dc Si-based transistor and SiC-based transistor on the performance of narrowband G3-PLC. The experimental setup was implemented to emulate a real situation, and tests were performed to show the results at different operating conditions.
