In cognitive radio, spectrum sensing is a challenging task. In this letter, a new spectrum sensing method is proposed based on Goodness of Fit test (GoF) of the energy of the received samples with a chi-square distribution. We derive the test statistic and evaluate the performance of the proposed method by Monte Carlo simulations. It is shown that our(More)
Cooperative spectrum sensing has proven its efficiency to detect spectrum holes in cognitive radio network (CRN) by combining sensing information of multiple cognitive radio users. In this paper, we study different fusion schemes that can be implemented in fusion center. Simulation comparison between these schemes based on hard, quantized and soft fusion(More)
In cognitive radio systems, secondary users can be coordinated to perform cooperative spectrum sensing to overcome the hidden terminal problem. However, when the number of cooperative users tends to be very large, too many cooperative users will make the whole sensing time intolerantly long and huge consumption of system resource. In this paper, we studied(More)
— In this paper, the channel utilization (throughput vs sensing time relationship) is analyzed for cooperative spectrum sensing under different combining rules and scenarios. The combining rules considered in this study are the OR hard combining rule, the AND hard combining rule, the Equal Gain Soft combining rule and the two-bit quantized (softened hard)(More)
Recently, Goodness-of-Fit (GoF) based spectrum sensing has been proposed as a method for blind narrowband spectrum sensing. GoF based spectrum sensing has the nice feature that, compared to Energy Detection, it needs fewer samples to achieve the same sensing performance. In this paper, we present how GoF based spectrum sensing can be integrated in a(More)
In this paper, we study a consensus algorithm for distributed spectrum sensing (DSS) in cognitive radio networks (CRN) integrating a Goodness of Fit based spectrum sensing scheme. Existing work in this area often applies energy detector as a local spectrum sensing method for DSS, however in this case one needs to make the assumption that the noise level is(More)
—In cognitive radio, spectrum sensing is one of the most important tasks. In this article, a blind spectrum sensing method based on goodness-of-fit (GoF) test using likelihood ratio (LLR) is studied. In the proposed method, a chi-square distribution is used for GoF testing. The performance of the method is evaluated through Monte Carlo simulations. It is(More)
