Ant Colony Optimization for Joint Channel Estimation and Impulsive Noise Mitigation Method in OFDM Systems

N P Sarada Devi, M L Ravichandra, Parnapalle Reshma

Abstract

The impulsive noise can deteriorate sharply the performance of orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems. In this paper, we propose a novel joint channel impulse response estimation and impulsive noise mitigation algorithm based on compressed sensing theory. In this algorithm, both the channel impulse response and the impulsive noise are treated as a joint sparse vector. Then, the sparse Bayesian learning framework is adopted to jointly estimate the channel impulse response, the impulsive noise, and the data symbols, in which the data symbols are regarded as unknown parameters. In this article, we propose an ant colony optimization (ACO) algorithm for large MIMO detection analysis. We also discuss the robustness of the proposed ant colony algorithm for better enhancement and quality of analysis, the proposed algorithm utilizes all subcarriers without any a priori information of the channel and impulsive noise. The simulation results show that the proposed algorithm achieves significant performance improvement on the channel estimation and bit error rate performance.
