Abstract : In the wide area master-slave PLC (powerline communication) system, the source node cannot reach the destination node without packet relay. Due to the time-variable attenuation in the powerline, the communication distance cannot be defined. Two kind of dynamic repeater algorithms are developed, dynamic source routing and flooding based routing. In this paper, we use analytic approach to compare the performance of those two routing protocols. We give formulas to calculate the average duration of a polling cycle for each protocols. Then we present simulation results to bolster the results of our analysis. We use three metrics, which are bandwidth consumed for routing signaling, normalized routing load and average duration of a polling cycle to evaluate those routing protocols.
