Channel Estimation Based on Interpolation in OFDM System
OFDM（Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing）is a new modulation technology, which can reduce multi-pass interference efficiently. It splits a high-rate data stream into a number of lower-rate data streams which can be transmitted simultaneously over a number of subcarriers. It brings high spectral efficiency. In this paper, we first introduce the channel estimation algorithm based on comb-pilot in OFDM system, and emphasis on analysis and comparison of the three kinds of interpolation methods: linear interpolation, low-pass interpolation and transform-domain interpolation. We use MATLAB to carry out the system simulation, and its results indicate that: The performance of low-pass interpolation is the best ,but it’s hard to carry out; transform-domain interpolation’s performance and complexity are both between above two methods.
