Notice: As of 2014 and for the forthcoming years, the publication frequency/periodicity of WSEAS Journals is adapted to the 'continuously updated' model. What this means is that instead of being separated into issues, new papers will be added on a continuous basis, allowing a more regular flow and shorter publication times. The papers will appear in reverse order, therefore the most recent one will be on top.

ABSTRACT: Single Carrier-Frequency Division Multiple Access-Code Division Multiple Access (SC-FDMACDMA) suffers from Carrier Frequency Offset (CFO) problem, chiefly for Long Term Evolution (LTE) uplink. In this paper, we present a proposed compensation technique to mitigate the impact of Inter-Carrier Interference (ICI) and Multiple-Access Interference (MAI). The proposed technique is compared with similar compensation techniques namely, Self-Cancellation and Single User Detector (SUD) techniques. Simulation results show improvement in BER performance compared to these techniques. In the presence Additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN), the proposed Minimum Difference (MD) - Self-Cancellation technique outperforms the SelfCancellation and SUD techniques by 1.4 dB and 2.1 dB, respectively at BER =10-4. Also, in Rayleigh fading channel, it is observed that, the proposed MD-Self-Cancellation technique provides a minimum degradation compared to conventional Self-Cancellation and SUD techniques by about 1.1 dB and 3.9 dB, respectively.
