This work investigates adaptive coding and modulation (ACM) algorithms under the realistic assumption that the available channel state information (CSI) at the transmitter is imperfect due to estimation errors and/or feedback delays. First, we introduce an optimal performance metric for the secondary user (SU) bit-interleaved coded orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (BIC-OFDM) system, called the expected goodput (EGP). By using an accurate modeling approximation, we succeed in deriving a tractable and very accurate approximation for the EGP. This approximate EGP (AEGP) is then used for the derivation of several ACM algorithms which optimize the code rate and bit and energy allocation under a constraint on the interference caused to the PU network. In the numerical results, we show that the AEGP is far more accurate than previous attempts to model the GP in the presence of imperfect CSI. Further, we verify that, in spite of the imperfect nature of the available CSI, the derived ACM algorithms significantly increase the goodput of the SU network, compared to a non-adaptive selection of the transmission parameters.

Abstract

This work investigates adaptive coding and modulation (ACM) algorithms under the realistic assumption that the available channel state information (CSI) at the transmitter is imperfect due to estimation errors and/or feedback delays. First, we introduce an optimal performance metric for the secondary user (SU) bit-interleaved coded orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (BIC-OFDM) system, called the expected goodput (EGP). By using an accurate modeling approximation, we succeed in deriving a tractable and very accurate approximation for the EGP. This approximate EGP (AEGP) is then used for the derivation of several ACM algorithms which optimize the code rate and bit and energy allocation under a constraint on the interference caused to the PU network. In the numerical results, we show that the AEGP is far more accurate than previous attempts to model the GP in the presence of imperfect CSI. Further, we verify that, in spite of the imperfect nature of the available CSI, the derived ACM algorithms significantly increase the goodput of the SU network, compared to a non-adaptive selection of the transmission parameters.
