Joint Channel and Carrier Estimation Using Extended Kalman Filter

Grzegorz Haza


In this paper a proposal of joint channel and carrier estimation using extended Kalman filter (EKF) is presented. For the proposed algorithm simulations are performed and the results are compared with the separate channel estimation based on the Kalman filter (KF) and carrier estimation based on the extended extended Kalman filter, EKF, joint channel and carrier estimation, synchronization, digital receiver.
