The performance of DMT systems is studied in impulsive noise channels by using Middleton's Class A noise distribution. A statistical model is developed to generate Class A distributed impulsive noise samples and this model is used for the performance analysis. An exact expression is derived for the subchannel SER. By employing the central limit theorem, the… (More)
This paper examines the performances of spatial multiplexing (SM) and maximal ratio combining (MRC) systems in the presence of the polarization diversity. It is assumed that dual-polarized antennas are used at both the transmitter and the receiver. The symbol error rate (SER) for SM and MRC systems is obtained as a function of cross polarization… (More)
Energy is a valuable resource in wireless communication, navigation and sensor nodes. Maintenance and replacement of batteries in battery-driven nodes may not be possible, cost-effective or suitable for many applications. On the other hand, energy harvesting provides sustainable and independent operation with very long lifetime but usually with unregulated… (More)
—This paper presents a comparison between the outage capacity of MIMO channels predicted by the Kronecker and Müller models as a function of the number of scatterers, transmit and receive antennas. The Müller model is based on the single-scattered rays between arrays of transmit-and receive antennas, while the Kronecker model considers only double… (More)
Impulse noise is considered as one of the major sources of degradation in powerline communications. This paper presents a model for the impulse width and impulse interarrival time statistics based on the experiments conducted in an industrial region in Ankara.
