Prediction via 2-D Frequency Estimation

- If we accurately estimate parameters in channel model, we could effectively extrapolate the fading process
- Estimation and extrapolation period should be within time window where model parameters are stationary
- Estimation of two-dimensional complex sinusoids in noise
- Well studied in radar, sonar, and other array signal processing applications [Kay, 1988]
- Many algorithms available, but are computationally intensive

26

Two-step 1-D Frequency Estimation

- Typically, many propagation paths share the same resolvable time delay
- We can thus break down the problem into two steps
- Time-delay estimation
- Doppler-frequency estimation

Prediction over all the subcarriers

- Design prediction filter for each of the Nd data subcarriers
- Mean-square error

…

Data Subcarriers

Prediction over the pilot subcarriers- Design filter on the Npilot pilot subcarriers only
- Less computation and storage needed
- Npilot << Nd (e.g. Npilot = 8; Nd = 192 for 802.16e OFDM)
- Use the same prediction filter for the data subcarriers nearest to the pilot carrier

51

Prediction on time-domain channel taps

- Design filter on Nt · Npilot time-domain channel taps
- Channel estimates typically available only in freq. domain
- IFFT required to compute time-domain channel taps
- MSE:

52

Step 1 – Time-delay estimation

- Estimate autocorrelation function using the modified covariance averaging method [Stoica & Moses, 1997]
- Estimate the number of paths L using minimum description length rule [Xu, Roy, & Kailath, 1994]
- Estimate the time delays using Estimation of Signal Parameters via Rotational Invariance Techniques (ESPRIT) [Roy & Kailath, 1989]
- Estimate the amplitudes cp(l) using least-squares
- Discrete Fourier Transform of these amplitudes could be used to estimate channel
- More accurate than conventional approaches, and similar to parametric channel estimation method in [Yang, et al., 2001]

57

Step 2 – Doppler Frequency Estimation

- Using complex amplitudes cp(l) estimated from Step 1 as the left hand side for (2), we determine the rest of the parameters
- Similar steps as Step 1 can be applied for the parameter estimation for each path p
- Using the estimated parameters, predict channel as

58

Prediction as parameter estimation

- Channel is a continuous non-linear function of the 4M-length channel parameter vector

59

Closed-form expression for asymptotic CRLB

- Using large-sample limit of CRLB matrix for general 2-D complex sinusoidal parameter estimation [Mitra & Stoica, 2002]
- Much simpler expression
- Achievable by maximum-likelihood and nonlinear least-squares methods
- Monte-Carlo numerical evaluations not necessary

61

Insights from the MSE expression

- Linear increase with 2 and M
- Dense multipath channel environments are the hardest to predict [Teal, 2002]
- Quadratic increase in n and |k| with f and estimation error variances
- Emphasizes the importance of estimating these accurately
- Nt, Nf, Dtand Df should be chosen as large as possible to decrease the MSE bound
