Cooperative OFDM Channel Estimation with Frequency Offsets
Abstract— This paper discusses channel estimation in a cooperative orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) network in the presence of frequency offsets. Both the amplifyand-forward (AF) and decode-and-forward (DF) relaying modes are analyzed. In order to eliminate the multiple access interference (MAI), the maximum number of active AF and DF relays are j N 2L−1 k and ¥N L ¦ , respectively, where N is the total number of subcarriers, L is the channel order and bac is the maximum integer part of a. The pairwise error probability (PEP) of orthogonal space-time coding in cooperative OFDM due to both the frequency offset and channel estimation errors is also evaluated. The optimal power allocation ratio between the source and the set of the relays to minimize the PEP is derived for both the relay modes. When L < 16, the DF mode always outperforms the AF mode in terms of PEP. Given 16 active relays and with L = 4, the proposed DF mode outperforms the AF mode by about 9 dB ...
