Abstract

The problem of channel estimation for Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) systems in fast time-varying and frequency selective radio channels has attracted the attention of scientists and receiver manufacturers. The wireless communication suffers from Additive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN), fading due to the multipath nature of the channel and spectral dispersion caused by the relative movement of the receiver with respect to the transmitter. In this paper a novel channel estimator for the Next Generation Terrestrial Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB-T2) is proposed. It is based on the estimation of the Doppler Shift (DS) from the variations of the envelope of the edge pilots (EP), in order to estimate the time interval where the channel could be considered as flat and then adaptively adjusting a buffer where the scattered pilots (ScP) carried within the received OFDM symbols during this time interval, are stored and averaged. Because the noise is considered AWGN with zero mean, the averaging process discards the noise and by interpolating the pilots an estimation of the channel is obtained.
