Minimum BER power loading for OFDM in fading channel

A novel approach to power loading for orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) systems is proposed. The corresponding algorithm minimizes the aggregate bit-error rate, but appears to be rather complicated. Consequently, a much simpler, quasioptimal loading algorithm is developed. The performance of various power loading strategies known in the literature are compared with the proposed quasi-optimal algorithm in the Rayleigh frequency-selective fading channel.
