Sampling and Doppler Bandwidth

An important aspect of the Tapped Delay Line (TDL) model is the sampling rate for
simulations.
In simulation we use sampled values which should be sampled at 8 to 32 times the
bandwidth
The doppler bandwidth, or the doppler spread, Bd, is the bandwidth of the doppler
spectrum Sd(), and is an indicator of how fast the channel characteristics are changing
(fading) as a function of time. If Bd is of the order of the signal bandwidth Bs ( 1/Ts),
the channel characteristics are changing (fading) at a rate comparable to the symbol
rate, and the channel is said to be fast fading. Otherwise the channel is said to be slow
fading. Thus
Bd << Bs 1/Ts (Slow fading channel)
Bd >> Bs 1/Ts (Fast fading channel)

Tap Input Process Data


Two independent Gaussian random variables x1 and x2 are
generated
X1,X2 ~ N(0,1)

For a given Doppler Frequency fd and system symbol rate


1/Ts.
The term fdTs is known as the fade rate.
Each I and Q components should have this fade rate.
The envelope should be Rayleigh distributed and the phase
should be uniformly distributed

Doppler Filter
The models for doppler power spectral densities for mobile
applications assume:
there are many multipath components
each multipath has different delays
all components have the same doppler spectrum.

Each multipath component (ray)


made up of a large number of simultaneously arriving unresolvable
multipath components
angle of arrival with a uniform angular distribution at the receive
antenna.

Jakes Model
Jakes derived the first comprehensive mobile radio channel
model for both doppler effects and amplitude fading effects
The classical Jakes doppler spectrum has the form

where
fd is the maximum doppler shift

The Jakes filter is implemented via FIR filter in time domain

Linear Interpolation
In generating the tap gain processes it should be noted that the
bandwidth of the tap gain processes for slowly time-varying channels will
be very small compared to the bandwidth of the signals that flow through
them.
In this case, the tap gain filter should be designed and executed at a
slower sampling rate.
Interpolation can be used at the output of the filter to produce denser
samples at a rate consistent with the sampling rate of the signal coming
into the tap.
Designing the filter at the higher rate will lead to computational
inefficiencies as well as stability problems.
