Abstract

This study proposes an efficient channel-estimation scheme for Multiband (MB) Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM)-based Ultra Wide Band (UWB) communication systems. One of the challenges in wireless system is the frequency selective fading caused due to multipath channel between the transmitter and receiver. The signal bandwidth in broad band cellular wireless systems typically exceeds the coherence bandwidth of the multipath channel. To overcome such a multipath fading environment with low complexity and to increase the performance, UWB OFDM system is used. To practically realize MB-OFDM UWB, one needs to cope with numerous design challenges, particularly in receiver designs such as symbol timing, Carrier Frequency Offset (CFO) and sampling frequency offset compensation, as well as Channel Frequency Response (CFR) estimation. A channel estimation scheme using a Takagi-Sugeno (T-S) fuzzy based neural network under the time varying velocity of the mobile station in a UWB OFDM system is proposed in this study. In our proposal, by utilizing the learning capability of Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Inference System (ANFIS), the ANFIS is trained with correct channel state information then the trained network is used as a channel estimator. To validate the performance of our proposed method, simulation results are given and found that it gives more accurate prediction of channel coefficients as compared with fuzzy channel estimator under various highly noisy multipath channel conditions.
