English abstract:
In this paper, we propose an improved pairs of pilots (POP) design method for channel estimation in offset quadrature amplitude modulation based filter bank multicarrier (OQAM/FBMC) systems. Based on an error analysis of the conventional POP channel estimation method, we first develop a heuristic pilot design in which each pilot pair is inserted at two consecutive subcarriers. Besides, we further propose to build a preamble by quartet of subcarriers and conduct a pilot optimization subject to a pilot power constraint, aiming to suppress the noise effect as much as possible. To obtain its optimal solution, we convert the original non-convex pilot optimization problem into a convex semidefinite programming problem, which is shown to be computationally efficient and readily solvable. Numerical simulations validate the effectiveness and superiority of the proposed pilot design method compared to the conventional POP and interference approximation methods.
