Abstract

Problem statement: Nowadays, the mobile telecommunications industry faces the problem of providing the technology that be able to support a wide variety of services ranging from voice communication with a bit rate of a few kbps to wireless multimedia in which bit rate up to 2 Mbps. Approach: This study introduced a new performance study to enhance the Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) system based on both efficient iterative number of subcarrier estimation techniques and a tracking algorithm was proposed. Result: The performance of system degrades with increase of the mobile velocity or increase of the number of channel fingers. The noiseless received signal at the weakest subcarrier is estimated based on all the detected data symbols using a hard or soft decision. Due to the flexibility of the transform design, the analysis conducted is applicable for other common systems as well. Conclusion: Simulation results showed the proposed algorithm can track the velocity variation very well and perform channel estimation using the most efficient tracking mode.
