Abstract:

This master thesis analyzes the effect of Carrier Frequency Offsets (CFO) on LTEuplink transmission, which is the main cause of ICI (Inter Carrier Interference) andMAI (Multiuser Access Interference). A model of the LTE uplink is required toconduct the study and is implemented in MATLAB, in compliance with 3GPPspecifications. The model can generate uplink signal as generated by the UE, (UserEquipment) and it supports multiple channel bandwidths described by the 3GPP.The channel estimation is done with the help of block type pilots. The model is usedto simulate the experimental conditions. The presence of CFO results in poor systemperformance. Therefore, many algorithms have been proposed for the CFOcancellation such as Successive Interference Cancellation (SIC), Parallel InterferenceCancellation (PIC) and Inverse Interference Matrix Cancellation. As the topic is verybroad, I investigate the performance of Inverse Interference Matrix Cancellationalgorithm. Compared with the other CFO cancellation algorithms this algorithm candirectly estimate the interference components from the inverse pilot matrix, thusthere is no need for CFO estimation. Simulation results show that the algorithm isvery effective in the presence of CFO. The channel estimation technique used is theLeast Square (LS) method and frequency selective channel is used for simulation.Performance graphs are plotted in terms of BER (Bit Error Rate) against differentvalues of SNR (Signal to Noise Ratio).
