Performance of Digital Communication System Over OWDP Fading Channels

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 472)


The outage and Average Bit Error Rate (ABER) performance of a single-channel Digital communication system in One Wave Diffused Power (OWDP) fading are obtained. The probability density function (pdf) is used to obtain the expressions for outage probability, and ABER for coherent and non-coherent modulation. The effects of the types of coherent BPSK, Binary Frequency-Shift Keying (BFSK), M-ary PSK, Rect.Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) and non-coherent Differential Binary Phase-Shift Keying (DBPSK), BFSK and M-ary FSK, and the fading parameter K on the system performance have been studied. The results are therefore obtained and verified with the results found in literature.
