Estimation of OFDM Carrier Frequency Offset Robust to Offset Variation


Article Preview

In this paper, we propose a novel carrier frequency offset (CFO) estimation scheme for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems. The proposed scheme has much wider estimation range compared with that of the conventional scheme, making it more robust to the fractional FO variation. Numerical results demonstrate that the proposed scheme has better estimation performance than the conventional scheme for wider fractional FO range.
