LTE Uplink Modeling and Channel Estimation
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
This master thesis investigates the uplink transmition from User Equipment (UE) to base station in LET (Long Term Evolution) and channel estimation using pilot symbols with parameter defined in 3GPP (3rd Generation Partnership Project) specifications. The purpose of the thesis was to implement a simulator which can generate uplink signal as it is generated by UE. The Third Generation (3G) mobile system was given the name LTE. This thesis focus on the uplink of LTE where single carrier frequency division multiple access (SC-FDMA) is utilized as a multiple access technique. The advantage over the orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA), which is used in downlink is to get better peak power characteristics. Because in uplink communication better peak power characteristic is necessary for better power efficiency in mobile terminals. To access the performance of uplink transmition realistic channel model for wireless communication system is essential. Channel models used are proposed by International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the correct knowledge of these models is important for testing, optimization and performance improvements of signal processing algorithms. The channel estimation techniques used are Least Square (LS) and Least Minimum Mean Square Error (LMMSE) for different channel models. Performance of these algorithms has been measured in term of Bit Error Rate (BER) and Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR).
