Nonlinear Channel Characterization in OFDM Systems Using Signals With Spectral Notches

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The authors consider the problem of characterizing nonlinear channels in real baseband OFDM communication systems. A novel method is proposed to estimate the frequency domain Volterra kernels of nonlinear channels using OFDM signals with spectral notches. In this method, the OFDM signal is arranged in a way that each full-spectral OFDM symbol frame is followed by copies of the same OFDM symbol frame but each has a spectral notch at a distinct frequency. They derive the mathematical expression of the difference signal between the outputs of a full-spectral OFDM symbol frame and its corresponding OFDM symbol frame with a spectral notch.
