Performance analysis of adaptive loading OFDM under Rayleigh fading

Canpolat, B
Tanik, Y
In this paper, we investigate the performance of adaptive loading orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) under Rayleigh fading with maximal ratio-combining (MRC) diversity at the receiver. We assume that channel-state information is available at both the transmitter and the receiver. Closed-form expressions for the lower bound on the average capacity of OFDM transmission under Rayleigh fading are provided for ideal MRC diversity. Simple approximate expressions for the average capacity of the Rayleigh-fading channel are also provided for the high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) case. In the second part of this paper, a maximum-rate adaptive-loading strategy is derived for uncoded quadrature-amplitude-modulation modulated OFDM. Simple lower bound expressions and high-SNR approximations are provided for the average spectral efficiency of the maximum-rate adaptive-loaded uncoded OFDM under Rayleigh-fading channel conditions. According to the results, the performance of the uncoded adaptive-loading OFDM is about 8.5 dB inferior to the capacity bound at 10(-5) symbol error probability under frequency-selective Rayleigh fading.


Robust Tracking in Cellular Networks Using HMM Filters and Cell-ID Measurements
Bshara, Mussa; Orguner, Umut; Gustafsson, Fredrik; Van Biesen, Leo (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-03-01)
A localization algorithm based on cell identification (Cell-ID) information is proposed. Instead of building the localization decisions only on the serving base station, all the detected Cell-IDs (serving or nonserving) by the mobile station are utilized. The statistical modeling of user motion and the measurements are done via a hidden Markov model (HMM), and the localization decisions are made with maximum a posteriori estimation criterion using the posterior probabilities from an HMM filter. The results ...

Non-Maxwellian locally-conformal PML absorbers for finite element mesh truncation
Ozgun, Ozlem; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2007-03-01)
We introduce the locally-conformal perfectly matched layer (PML) approach, which is an easy and straightforward PML implementation, to the problem of mesh truncation in the finite element method (FEM). This method is based on a locally-defined complex coordinate transformation which has no explicit dependence on the differential geometric characteristics of the PML-free space interface. As a result, it is possible to handle challenging PML geometries with interfaces having arbitrary curvature, especially th...
Efficient hybrid discrete Fourier transform-moment method for fast analysis of large rectangular arrays
Chou, HT; Ho, HK; Pathak, PH; Nepa, P; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2002-02-01)
A novel approach combining the moment method (MoM) and the discrete Fourier transform (DFT) is developed for the fast analysis of electromagnetic (EM) radiation/scattering from electrically large, finite, planar rectangular arrays. In particular, the unknown array distribution to be solved is represented in terms of the DFT within the MoM for a given array excitation. The proposed DFT-MoM approach for large arrays has the advantage that it can overcome the inefficiency of the conventional MoM approach by dr...
Synchronization of linear oscillators coupled through a dynamic network with interior nodes
Tuna, Sezai Emre (Elsevier BV, 2020-07-01)
Synchronization is studied in an array of identical linear oscillators of arbitrary order, coupled through a dynamic network comprising dissipative connectors (e.g., dampers) and restorative connectors (e.g., springs). The coupling network is allowed to contain interior nodes, i.e., those that are not directly connected to an oscillator. It is shown that the oscillators asymptotically synchronize if and only if the Schur complement (with respect to the boundary nodes) of the complex-valued Laplacian matrix ...
