Abstract

OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) is an enabling technology for multimedia wireless communications due to its ability in mitigating the effects of multi-path propagation. However, OFDM is sensitive to the carrier frequency offset (CFO), which destroys the orthogonality among sub-carriers and induces inter -carrier interference (ICI). When OFDM is employed in a multiple access scenario, with clusters of sub-carriers allocated to different users (often referred to as OFDMA). CFOs induce both ICI and MUI (multi-user interference), which result in significant performance degradation. In this paper, the CFO estimation methodologies for OFDM/OFDMA are first reviewed. We then present a scheme to compensate for the CFOs in OFDMA systems. In the proposed scheme, circular convolutions are employed to reproduce the interference after the DFT (Discrete Fourier Transform) processing. The interference is then removed from the original received signal to reduce the MUI. Simulation resuIts show that the proposed scheme can significantly improve system performance.
