Rayleigh fading simulator

Helo all,

I need your help for simulation of the Rayleigh fading.
I know that I can use GNURADIO channel models, but I need to know how
they simulated.
For example I am looking into the ‘fading_model_impl.cc’ in channel
models of GNURADIO.
Can someone tell me how this is simulated?

I heard some people also developed it on their own, but I am not sure if
that is available and supported by you.

Can you specify what you want to do? I don’t understand the question.
If you connect this block to your signal, it will “simulate” the
channel.

Developed their own what? Channels?
You can configure these channels to different types of scenarios.

Martin,

it is so simple, I try to explain again:

my question is how you add Doppler to the channel (the code)?

Different people add it in a different way like using FIR or IIR
filters. So, I am wondering if you used IIR filter or FIR. If you know
of course, how you coded it?

Hi Nasi,

when I checked the fading models supplied in GNU Radio 3.7 the other
week
they seemed to be generating nasty glitches in their output. You could
instead take a look at ‘my’ custom block for doing simple single path
configurable doppler Rayleigh fading. The output of this has been
statistically validated against the theoretical Rayleigh distribution. I
can provide further details of the validations that have been done if
required. There is a version of the block for both GNURadio 3.6 and 3.7
API’s. This block works fine when instantiated singly, however if you
try
and build a multipath fading model out of it by instantiating more than
one
of these blocks (with delays) at the python level then the whole thing
tends to seg fault, for as yet undetermined reasons.

You are welcome to give it a try however.

Here is the link to the GNU Radio 3.7 version of the block,

Feedback welcome

Cheers

Hi Richard,

Thanks a lot!

Statistical validation can be correct for different Doppler
implementations in general.
However the way they add Doppler shifts is different.

I took your code and implemented in matlab and compared with jakes model
of matlab’s rayleighchan function.
There is a big mismatch in how they add Doppler shift from sample to
sample. May be this is an interpolation/filter issue.
This happens when I add Doppler shift in a deterministic way. I keep the
phase constant and time coherent.
After that I take a look at the Doppler shift that the methods add. As
an input I take ones to see the difference.

You know better than me how Doppler is added from sample to sample.
Especially, for a short time period (coherent time) within one OFDM
symbol the Doppler shift is linear.
At least we can assume that it is almost linear which we should not feel
the difference too much.
Classical Doppler models like Jakes model would represent this property.

Now I am trying to test it in reality and find out how it is added to
the input data from sample to sample.
And which model is better to take into account. I need it since I am
trying to compensate it back in the receiver as a part of my research
work.

I will appreciate your comments on this.

Best,

Nasimi
