—Phase noise must be carefully considered when designing an OFDM-based communication system since an accurate prediction of the tolerable phase noise can allow the system and RF engineers to relax specifications. This paper analyzes the performance of OFDM systems under phase noise and its dependence on the number of sub-carriers both in the presence and… (More)
— This letter analyzes the phase noise effects on an orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) signal and its dependence with the sub-carrier spacing. Pilot-based channel estimation, which has been suggested as a means of combating the channel effects, can also correct the phase noise effects under some circumstances, which are investigated.
—This paper provides the results of a complete study about the indoor radio propagation channel at 17 GHz. Wideband parameters, as coherence bandwidth or rms delay spread, and coverage are analyzed for the design of an OFDM-based broadband WLAN. Discussion about some adequate system parameters is also included. The report presents the characterization… (More)
We study the capability of the MAGIC telescope to observe under moderate 3 moonlight. TeV γ-ray signals from the Crab nebula were detected with the MAGIC telescope during periods when the Moon was above the horizon and during twilight. This was accomplished by increasing the trigger discriminator thresholds. No change is necessary in the high voltage… (More)
Until April 2007 the MAGIC telescope used a 300 MSamples/s FADC system to sample the shaped PMT signals produced by the captured Cherenkov photons of air showers. Different algorithms to reconstruct the signal from the read-out samples (extractors) have been developed and are described and compared. Criteria based on the obtained charge and time… (More)
In this paper, a new algorithm for subcarrier and power allocation for the downlink of multiuser OFDM transmission is presented. The proposed algorithm is more stable and it offers a lower complexity and better performance than previous existing algorithms.
We report on the discovery of Very High Energy (VHE) γ-ray emission from the BL Lacertae object 1ES 1011+496. The observation was triggered by an optical outburst in March 2007 and the source was observed with the MAGIC telescope from March to May 2007. Observing for 18.7 hr, we find an excess of 6.2 σ with an integrated flux above 200 GeV of (1.58±0.32) ·… (More)
—Plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) have recently attracted much attention due to their potential to reduce CO 2 emissions and transportation costs and can be grouped into entities (aggregators) to provide ancillary services such as frequency regulation. In this paper, the application of aggregators to frequency regulation by making fair use of their energy… (More)
