Wideband Adaptive Array Applied to OFDM System

by Huang, Ren-Huang

Abstract (Summary)
Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) technique has been extensively used in digital wireless communications, such as Digital Broadcasting and wireless local area network (WLAN). It is considered to be one of the most promising techniques for transmission on the downlinks of broadband wireless access systems to combat multipath and multiple access interference (MAI). Spatial processing that exploits the diversity provided by smart antenna (SA) or intelligent antenna (IA) arrays, in which the adaptive beamformer is employed, is another alternatives to increase the efficiency of wireless system capacity and performance without allocating additional frequency spectrum. It allows the system to make full use of spatial diversity due to multiple antennas [5][6]. To further improve the performance for suppressing various interference sources; including narrowband and wideband interference, flat and frequency selective fading, for different channel environmentin. In this thesis, a smart antenna with wideband beamspace approach array beamformer associated with the slideing window (SW) linearly constrained RLS (SW-LC-RLS) algorithm, and the OFDM systems with smart antenna array are emhasized. Computer simulation results confirmed that our proposed scheme could achieve desired performance compared with the conventional approach, in terms of MAI and other interference suppression.
