OPRA Technique for M-QAM over Nakagami-m Fading Channel with Imperfect CSI

Authors: Mr. Bhargabjyoti Saikia1, Rupaban Subadar†2

Analysis of an Optimum Power and Rate Adaptation (OPRA) technique has been carried out for Multilevel-Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (M-QAM) over Nakagami-m ?at fading channels considering an imperfect channel estimation at the receiver side. The optimal solution has been derived for a continuous adaptation, which is a specific bound function and not possible to express in close mathematical form. Therefore, a sub-optimal solution is derived for the continuous adaptation and it has been observed that it tends to the optimum solution as the correlation coefficient between the true channel gain and its estimation tends to one. It has been observed that the receiver performance degrades with an increase in estimation error.
