Dynamic Channels and Advanced Signal Processing


Recommended prerequisite for participation in the module

The module builds on knowledge obtained the module "Stochastic Processes".

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives


The students must have insight in:

  • Dynamic channels:
    • Power vs protection margins
    • Dynamic radio channel characterization
      • Short term scattering descriptions for single and multiple links
      • Channel hardening/Diversity
    • Item the interaction of multiple communication links which are jointly considered to optimize system performance
  • Advanced signal processing
    • Channel characterization and processing algorithms to exploit multi link radio propagation mechanisms of multiple antenna systems, such as
      • Space and time processing
      • Spatial data multiplexing and space-time coding
      • Time reversal techniques


The students must have understanding of:

  • Establish a link budget with account for dynamic protection margins for a given wireless communication system
  • Evaluate properties of dynamic channels and apply stabilization techniques
  • Evaluate the impact on system performance, by joint treatment of links in a multi-user/multi- network scenario – or other interaction mechanisms.
  • Apply processing methods for time and space exploitation of the wireless radio channel.


The students must be able to

  • Analyze, evaluate and model the PHY related signal impacts and manipulation options - and its relevance to a wireless communication system
