Interpolation Based Pilot-Aided Channel Estimation for STBC Spatial Modulation and Performance Analysis Under Imperfect CSI
A combination of space-time block coding and spatial modulation (STBC-SM) has been recently proposed for multiple input-multiple output systems to obtain both spatial diversity gain and more capacity simultaneously while assuming the perfect channel state information (P-CSI) was available at the receiver. However in practical scenarios the CSI is unknown to the receiver and should be estimated in order to detect the transmitted data in a reliable way. Therefore channel estimation (CE) is a major challenge in designing the STBC-SM systems. In this study the problem of CE is investigated and a new pilot-aided channel estimation (PA-CE) technique coupled with an interpolation is proposed for the STBC-SM systems operating in the presence of rapidly time-varying mobile channels. Several interpolation schemes such as the linear nearest neighbour piecewise cubic Hermite and the low-pass interpolations are applied and their performances are compared to determine the best suitable interpolation technique to be employed in STBC-SM systems. Bit error rate (BER) performance of the proposed CE technique is then investigated in time-varying channels with different modulation. Moreover the pairwise error probability of the STBC-SM scheme is derived and its average bit error probability is evaluated analytically in the presence of CE errors.

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 ...
