We present a geometric multipath propagation model for a microcell mobile environment. The model provides the statistics for the direction-of-arrival (DOA) of multipath components; also it provides the multipath power delay profiles (PDP), which are used to evaluate the bit error rate (BER) and the signal to interference ratio (SIR) for the direct-sequence(More)
Compressed sensing, viewed as a type of random undersampling, considers the acquisition and reconstruction of sparse or compressible signals at a rate significantly lower than that of Nyquist. Exact reconstruction from incompletely acquired random measurements is, under certain constraints, achievable with high probability. However, randomness may not(More)
In this work we present a comparative study for the transmission of a wavelet-compressed still image using FFT-OFDM over multipath channels with additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN). Rather than using a global threshold for the compression of the wavelet coefficients, we chose to compress the data by transmitting only the low-pass subbands from each(More)
The clipping and filtering method is analyzed in terms of power savings. The analysis takes account of the gain in the amplifier efficiency due to peak-to-average-power-ratio (PAPR) reduction. Assuming a linear amplifier and a typical digital signal processor, the power savings is shown to be in the order of Watts.
Impulsive noise is one of the major challenges in power line communications and can cause serious problems in OFDM-based PLC systems. In this paper, we propose a combined Time-Domain/Frequency-domain technique for impulsive noise reduction in OFDM-based PLC systems. The performance of the proposed technique is studied against well known time-domain(More)
We present a comparative study on Fourier-based OFDM (FFT-OFDM) and wavelet-based OFDM (DWT-OFDM) in DVB-T system (DWT being the discrete wavelet transform).We found that the DWT-OFDM outperforms FFT-OFDM in AWGN and Rayleigh fading channels. For AWGN channel, the gain in term of energy per bit to noise ratio Eb/No was improved by about 5 dB when the system(More)
Recent studies suggest that multicarrier systems using wavelets outperform conventional OFDM systems using the FFT, in that they have well-contained side lobes, improved spectral efficiency and BER performance, and they do not require a cyclic prefix. Here we study the wavelet packet and discrete wavelet transforms, comparing the BER performance of wavelet(More)
In this paper we derive closed-form expressions for the single-user capacity of selection combining diversity (SCD) system, taking into account the effect of imperfect channel estimation at the receiver. The channel considered is a slowly varying spatially independent flat Rayleigh fading channel. The complex channel estimate and the actual channel are(More)
In this contribution we focus on two principle methods of modelling MIMO radio channel, including the propagation-based and analytical method. In the propagation-based method, we present a space-time geometrical channel model with hyperbolically distributed scatterers for a macrocell mobile environment. On the other hand, popular mathematical models have(More)
The study investigated the dependance of absorbed mobile phone radiation in terms of specific absorption rate (SAR) values on head size. A dipole and a generic phone model were used to simulate mobile phone at 900/835 MHz, and standard SAM phantom as an adult head model. Three child head models were derived after uniformly scaling down standard head in all(More)
