Abstract

This paper studies common linear frequency direction pilot-symbol aided channel estimation algorithms for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing in a UTRA long term evolution context. Three deterministic algorithms are analyzed: the maximum likelihood (ML) approach, the noise reduction algorithm (NRA) and the robust Wiener (RW) filter. A closed form mean squared error is provided for these three algorithms. Analytical and simulation results show that, in the presence of virtual subcarriers, the ML can suffer large performance degradation due to ill-conditioned matrix issues. A solution to this problem is to use the Tikhonov regularization method giving the NRA. The equivalence between the NRA and the RW is proved analytically. A practical implementation of the NRA and RW is proposed based on partial-input partial-output FFT, leading to 6 to 8 times lower complexity than the reference implementation.
