Efficient BER Analysis of OFDM System over Nakagami-m Fading Channel

(M.Tech) DECS from VITAM College of Engineering
Assistant Professor, ECE Dept. in VITAM College of Engineering, Andhra Pradesh, India.

In this paper we present an efficient technique for the BER of OFDM system over Nakagami–m fading channels, using well known characteristics function based analysis approach. The average BER expressed in terms of the higher transcendental function such as the confluent hyper geometric functions. Our numerical results show that depending on the number of channel taps, the BER performance may degrade with increasing values of Nakagami–m fading parameters. Phase noise causes significant degradiation of performance of the system. The effects of the pahse noise on the performancr of the OFDM sysytems have been analytically evaluated. In this project the BER and MSE performance of the OFDM system over multipath fadding channel was analysed.

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
