Semiblind joint channel estimation and equalization for OFDM systems in rapidly varying channels
We describe a new joint iterative channel estimation and equalization algorithm for joint channel estimation and data detection for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems in the presence of frequency selective and rapidly timevarying channels. The algorithm is based on the expectation maximization-maximum a posteriori (EM-MAP) technique which is very suitable for the multicarrier signal formats. The algorithm leads to a receiver structure that yields the equalized output using the channel estimates. The pilot symbols are employed to estimate the initial channel coefficients effectively and unknown data symbols are averaged out in the algorithm. The band-limited discrete cosine serial expansion of low dimensionality is employed to represent the time-varying fading channel. In this way the resulting reduced dimensional channel coefficients are estimated iteratively with tractable complexity. The extensive computer simulations show that the algorithm has excellent symbol error rate (SER) and mean square error (MSE) performances for very high mobility even during the initialization step.

Publisher and Date:(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2018)Communication over acoustic signals underwater results in multi-scale multi-lag channels due to multipath propagation. Hence a robust channel estimation technique has to be present at the receiver. In this paper assuming underwater channels undergoing Rayleigh fading a path-based channel model that characterizes each path of the time-varying sparse channel by a delay a Doppler scale and an attenuation factor is considered. Alamouti's space-time block transmit diversity scheme is used in the form ...
This paper is concerned with the challenging and timely problem of channel estimation for spatial modulated systems in the presence of time varying channels. Recently estimation of channel state information for SM systems is investigated by the recursive least square (RLS) algorithm for slow fading channels. However it is clear that the RLS based receiver will have a performance degradation for fast fading channels. Therefore we developed iterative channel estimation based on detected symbols and ...
Joint Channel Estimation and Equalization for OFDM based Broadband Communications in Rapidly Varying Mobile Channels This paper is concerned with the challenging and timely problem of channel estimation for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems in the presence of frequency selective and very rapidly time varying channels. In OFDM systems operating over rapidly time-varying channels the orthogonality between subcarriers is destroyed leading to inter-carrier interference (ICI) and resulting in an irreducible error floor. The band-limited discrete cosine serial expansion of low-dimensionality ...
