Enhanced MMSE channel estimation using timing error statistics for wireless OFDM systems
Athaudage, Chandranath R. N. & Jayalath, Dhammika (2004) Enhanced MMSE channel estimation using timing error statistics for wireless OFDM systems. IEEE Transactions on Broadcasting, 50(4), pp. 369-376.
Estimation and tracking of the frequency-selective time-varying channel response is a challenging task for wireless communication systems incorporating coherent OFDM. In pilot-symbol-assisted (PSA) OFDM systems, the minimum mean-square-error (MMSE) estimator provides the optimum performance based on the channel statistics (channel correlation function and SNR). In OFDM systems, FFT-block timing error introduces a linear phase rotation to data modulated on individual subcarriers. An MMSE channel estimator designed only using the wireless channel statistics performs only sub-optimally when subcarrier phase rotations due to block timing errors are present. In this paper, we show that by using the block timing error statistics of the OFDM time-synchronizer the performance of the MMSE channel estimation can be significantly improved. Numerical results show that the bit-error-probability (BEP) performance degradation due to timing errors can be almost completely recovered by the proposed technique.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
