—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.
—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)
—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)
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 about very high energy (VHE) γ-ray observations of the Crab Nebula with the MAGIC telescope. The γ-ray flux from the nebula was measured between 60 GeV and 9 TeV. The energy spectrum can be described with a curved power law dF dE = f 0 (E/300 GeV) (a+b log 10 (E/300 GeV)) with a flux normalization f 0 of (6.0 ± 0.2 stat) × 10 −10 cm −2 s −1 TeV −1… (More)
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)
Recommended by Mischa Dohler We consider the problem of minimizing transmission energy in wireless sensor networks by taking into account that every sensor may require a different bit rate and reliability according to its particular application. We propose a cross-layer approach to tackle such a minimization in centralized networks for the total… (More)
