Smart Grid applications are going to reach
the LV grid assets and households in order to efficiently
use the resources in distribution grids. A cost effective
way to connect these devices is to utilize the existing
network infrastructure or to utilize Power-Line Com-
munication (PLC). In this work we have show how
PLC communication can have significant impairments
for load-frequency control operations in the microgrid.
Moreover, we have demonstrate how such poor network
performance can influence the control performance on
a case study of the low voltage grid controller. Further-
more, we have compared two network estimation algorithms which are used for adaptive gain scheduling of
the LVGC controller yielding better quality-of-control.
