Abstract:

Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing OFDM is being successfully used in numerous applications. It was chosen for IEEE 802.1 la wireless local area network WLAN standard, and it is being considered for the fourth- generation mobile communication systems. Along with its many attractive features, OFDM has some principal draw-backs. Sensitivity to frequency errors is the most dominant of these drawbacks. In this thesis, the frequency offset and phase noise effects on OFDM based communication systems are investigated under a variety of channel conditions covering both indoor and outdoor environments. The simulation performance results of the OFDM system for these channels are presented.
