Exact BER Analysis of OFDM Systems Communicating over Frequency-Selective Fading Channels Subjected to Carrier Frequency Offset
— Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) has been employed in numerous wireless standards. However, the performance of OFDM systems is degraded by both the Carrier Frequency Offset (CFO) and the Phase Estimation Error (PER). Hence new exact closed-form expressions are derived for calculating the average BER of OFDM systems in the presence of both CFO and PER in the context of frequencyselective Nakagami-m fading channels. Our simulation results verify the accuracy of our exact BER analysis. By contrast, the Gaussian approximation slightly over-estimates the average BER, especially when the normalized CFO is small, the number of OFDM subcarriers is low and when the fading is less severe.
