Description

  The present invention relates to a multicarrier transmission system that transmits information using a plurality of carrier waves.

  There is multicarrier transmission as a method of expanding the transmission band. In multicarrier transmission, a single wideband signal is not used, but a plurality of narrowband signals called “subcarriers” are frequency-multiplexed, and all narrowband signals are transmitted from the same transmission antenna. When the number of subcarriers is M, M signals are transmitted in parallel on the same radio link, so the communication speed increases to M times one subcarrier.

OFDM (orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing) is a representative technique for multicarrier transmission. In OFDM, transmission is performed using subcarriers in which the frequency interval between adjacent subcarriers is 1 / Tu . Here, Tu is the symbol length for each subcarrier. That is, OFDM is a modulation scheme in which a transmission signal sequence is blocked, converted into serial / parallel, a plurality of subcarriers are modulated, and the modulated subcarriers are transmitted in parallel. Any two subcarriers are orthogonal to each other, and in an ideal transmission, there is no interference between demodulated subcarriers on the receiving side. On the other hand, in multicarrier transmission other than OFDM, in order to avoid interference on the receiving side, it is necessary to separate and transmit subcarriers in the frequency domain so that the spectra of any two subcarriers do not overlap each other. For this reason, compared with OFDM, frequency utilization efficiency is reduced in multicarrier transmission other than OFDM.

Minoru Okada, "Fundamentals of OFDM", Microwave Workshop and Exhibition (MWE2003), Basic Course 02, Digital Modulation / Demodulation Technology, November 2003, [searched September 9, 2014], Internet <URL: http: // www .apmc-mwe.org / mwe2004 / en_mwe2003_TL / TL02-02.pdf>

  Since the multicarrier signal is obtained by multiplexing a plurality of subcarrier signals in the frequency domain, it becomes a wide band considering the entire band of the transmission signal. In general, since the frequency of each subcarrier is different in a multicarrier signal and the phase of the signal spectrum is independent, the envelope of the vector of the synthesized signal varies greatly. For this reason, it is easily affected by nonlinear characteristics due to an amplifier or the like.

  One of the parameters indicating the degree of envelope fluctuation is PAPR (Peak to Average Power Ratio) indicating the ratio between the maximum power value and the average power value of a signal. For example, in a modulated wave of 64QAM (quadrature amplitude modulation), the PAPR is 5.9 for a single carrier, but the PAPR is 9.5 for OFDM with 32 subcarriers.

  When a signal with a large PAPR is amplified, the average transmission power must be smaller than the maximum output of the amplifier, but from the viewpoint of power utilization efficiency, it is desirable to operate the amplifier at an operating point as close to the maximum output as possible. . However, at an operating point close to the maximum output, as the output power increases instantaneously, the signal is suppressed, nonlinear distortion occurs, and the modulation accuracy deteriorates. Therefore, an amplifier used for amplifying a multicarrier signal must be used in a region where the output back-off is large and the power use efficiency is low. For this reason, power consumption is large and the scale of the amplifier circuit including the radiator is large. Also, from the viewpoint of application of nonlinear distortion compensation technology, it is difficult to obtain a sufficient amount of compensation because the distortion compensation band is wide. In addition, even when digitizing to apply distortion compensation technology by signal processing, because of the wideband signal, the required specifications for the AD / DA converter, such as the sampling rate, are high, so the substantial compensation bandwidth cannot be sufficiently expanded. . Also, other components such as filters and antennas increase loss due to the wideband signal.

  On the other hand, for example, by dividing one broadband carrier into a plurality of subcarriers and amplifying each subcarrier and then combining the subcarriers, the signal band input to each amplifier can be narrowed. Further, the loss can be reduced for other components. However, since the combiner has a combination loss, it is necessary to increase the output power of the amplifier. Furthermore, in the case of dividing a modulation scheme band in which each subcarrier is not independent like OFDM, it is necessary to maintain the relationship of subcarriers before division after combining.

  In view of the above, an object of the present invention is to provide a multicarrier transmission system that narrows a broadband signal and transmits it.

In the multicarrier transmission system of the present invention, N is a predetermined integer equal to or greater than 2, n represents each integer satisfying 1 ≦ n ≦ N, and the subcarrier frequency is f n and the bandwidth is b n .

The multicarrier transmission system of 1st Embodiment. The multicarrier transmission system of 2nd Embodiment. The multicarrier transmission system of 3rd Embodiment.

<First Embodiment>
A multicarrier transmission system 100 according to a first embodiment of the present invention is shown in FIG. The multicarrier transmission system 100 uses a signal generated by the local oscillator 30 as a subcarrier center frequency, where N is a predetermined integer of 2 or more and n is an integer satisfying 1 ≦ n ≦ N. There an oscillator 40 for generating a first n sub-carrier signals of a radio frequency band bandwidth is b n at f n, the direction in which the phase of the n sub-carrier signal matches the phase of the subcarrier signals of the remaining a first n phase adjuster 42-n for adjusting the phase of the n sub-carrier signal, one of n modulation signal of the modulation signal having a center frequency of f 0 B 1, ..., modulation signal generating divided into B n amplifying the vessel 10, and the n 1 multiplier 12-n for modulating the signal from the n phase adjuster 42-n by the n-th modulation signal B n, the signal from the n 1 multiplier 12-n N-th amplifier 14-n and n-th amplifier 14 Of signals from n, and the n filter 16-n which pass band center frequency is equal to the bandwidth and the n sub-carrier signal is suppressed spurious signal or the like is passed through the frequency band of the b n, the n filter 16 an nth amplitude phase adjuster 18-n that adjusts the amplitude and phase of the signal from n, an amplitude phase controller 50 that controls each adjustment amount of the amplitude and phase of the nth amplitude phase adjuster 18-n, The n 1st antenna 20-n for transmitting a signal from the n amplitude phase adjuster 18-n is included. Note that the N n-th subcarrier signals (n = 1,..., N) have the same phase by the N n-th phase adjusters 42-n (n = 1,..., N).

In this embodiment, for example, the frequency interval between arbitrary adjacent subcarrier signals among N subcarrier signals generated by the oscillator 40 is Δf. That is, when the center frequency of one broadband carrier signal is f c (ie, f c = (f 1 + f N ) / 2 and f c >> f 0 ), the center frequency of the nth subcarrier signal is It is represented by Formula (1).
f n = f c + (2n−N−1) Δf / 2 (1)

The nth amplitude phase adjuster 18- n performs amplitude and phase adjustments on the nth modulation signal Bn . Each adjustment amount at this time, when it is assumed that the carrier signal of the center frequency f c from each branch is transmitted, the carrier signal at the receiving point is set to be in-phase synthesized. For example, at the center frequency f c , the directivity gain of an array antenna composed of N number of n 1 antennas 20-n (n = 1,..., N) is a direction in which a reception point exists when viewed from the array antenna. It is sufficient to set so as to be the maximum. Specifically, when adjusting the directivity to be maximized at an angle of θ degrees from the arrangement direction of the array antenna, the amplitude phase controller 50 adjusts the adjustment amount w of the nth amplitude phase adjuster 18-n. n is calculated according to equation (2). j is an imaginary unit, λ c is the wavelength of the carrier signal at the frequency f c , and d is the interval between the adjacent n 1 antennas 20-n.
w n = exp {-j (2π / λ c ) nd (sin θ)} @f c (2)

In this case, the reception point located in the angular direction of θ degrees from the orientation of the array antenna, the first n 1 antenna 20-n (n = 1, ..., N) a signal radiated signals are spatially synthesized from Will receive. This is equivalent to the center frequency from the respective branch has received a reception signal when the bandwidth to send the wideband carrier signal Delta] f · N at f c. For this reason, the receiving side should just have the function to receive a normal multicarrier transmission signal.

In particular, when one modulation signal input to the modulation signal generator 10 is a wideband signal, each amplitude and phase adjustment amount in the amplitude phase adjustment performed on the signal of the n-th branch is determined by each branch. It is preferable to set so that the carrier signals are in-phase combined at the reception point when it is assumed that the carrier signal having the frequency f n is transmitted from. For example, at the frequency f n , the directivity gain of the array antenna may be set so as to be maximized in the direction in which the reception point exists as viewed from the array antenna. Specifically, when adjusting the directivity to be maximized at an angle of θ degrees from the arrangement direction of the array antenna, the amplitude phase controller 50 adjusts the adjustment amount w of the nth amplitude phase adjuster 18-n. n is calculated according to equation (3). j is an imaginary unit, λ n is the wavelength of the carrier signal at the frequency f n , and d is the interval between the adjacent n 1 antennas 20-n. As an example of the case where one modulated signal is a wideband signal, when a receiver demodulates a received signal corresponding to one modulated signal, a certain error rate characteristic cannot be satisfied due to a phase difference. A modulation signal may be mentioned.
w n = exp {-j (2π / λ n ) nd (sin θ)} @f n (3)

Other adjustment amount determination method described above, as a method of determining the amplitude and phase the adjustment amount of, firstly, the carrier signal at the reception point when it is assumed that the carrier signal frequency f c from each branch is transmitted phase synthesis after setting the adjustment amount of each branch as, for branches other than the branch for transmitting a carrier signal having a frequency of branches and the frequency f c vicinity transmits a carrier signal of a frequency f c, the amplitude of the n th branch A method may be adopted in which each phase adjustment amount is set so that each carrier signal is in-phase combined at the reception point when it is assumed that a carrier signal having a frequency f n is transmitted from each branch. Here, the "frequency f c frequency near" is a condition which is determined in accordance with the specifications of the multi-carrier transmission system, for example, using the values R [Hz] which is determined in advance according to the specifications of the multicarrier transmission system Thus, “a frequency included in a bandwidth of f c −R or more and f c + R or less”.

In the above example, the subcarrier signal of the nth branch is a narrowband signal having the bandwidth Δf, and may be 1 / N of the bandwidth in normal multicarrier transmission. As an advantage of the bandwidth being 1 / N, first, since the transmission power per branch is also 1 / N, an amplifier having a small output power can be used. Since an amplifier with low output power is easy to design, there is an advantage that high performance, miniaturization, and low power consumption are easily achieved. Also, with regard to the linearization of amplifiers, a highly accurate method using digital signal processing has been studied in recent years, but it becomes easy to adopt an AD / DA converter or the like that can perform sufficient sampling by narrowing the signal band. Therefore, there is an advantage that it is easy to obtain high performance. In addition, characteristics of other components such as filters and antennas can be expected to be improved by narrowing the band. In addition, since each branch is usually composed of a device for the corresponding frequency band, there is an advantage that calibration can be performed independently for each branch using a signal of frequency f n , for example.

  When the present invention is applied to OFDM transmission with excellent frequency utilization efficiency in multicarrier transmission, efficient transmission is possible without inserting a guard band. However, the phase characteristic shift between subcarriers may affect the demodulation performance on the receiving side. For example, when the signal transmitted from each branch is an OFDM subcarrier, the demodulation performance may deteriorate due to the phase error between the subcarriers. However, in such a case, measures can be taken in advance on the transmission side by detecting a phase error on the reception side and feeding back to the transmission side.

Second Embodiment
A multicarrier transmission system 200 according to a second embodiment of the present invention is shown in FIG. The multicarrier transmission system 200 includes, in the configuration of the multicarrier transmission system 100 of the first embodiment, an nth coupler 19-n that extracts a part of a signal from the nth amplitude phase adjuster 18-n, and an nth phase. An n 2 -th multiplier 60-n that multiplies the signal from the regulator 42-n by the signal from the n-th coupler 19-n is added, and the n-th coupler 19 is used instead of the n 1 antenna 20-n. The configuration includes an n 2nd antenna 21-n that transmits a signal from −n. Amplitude phase controller 50, the n 2 detects the phase or at least one of variation in the amplitude of the signal from the n coupler 19-n on the basis of a signal from the multiplier 60-n, to cancel the variation Further, the amplitude and phase adjustment amounts of the n-th amplitude phase adjuster 18-n are set so that the signals from all the amplitude phase adjusters 18-n (n = 1,..., N) are in-phase combined in the space. Control.

The adjustment amount obtained by the equation (2) described in the first embodiment is an ideal case where the signal transmission characteristics in each branch are ideal, and in reality, there is a possibility that unexpected fluctuations occur in both the amplitude and the phase. is there. Variations in amplitude and phase can occur due to, for example, amplifier aging or oscillator phase noise. For this reason, the amplitude phase controller 50 detects the phase fluctuation and amplitude fluctuation generated in the nth branch based on the output from each n 2nd multiplier 60-n (n = 1,..., N). , So as to cancel out phase fluctuations and amplitude fluctuations, and so that signals from all amplitude phase adjusters 18-n (n = 1,..., N) are in-phase combined in space. to adjust the adjustment amount w n. Since the detection of the phase fluctuation and the amplitude fluctuation can be performed by a well-known technique, a detailed description thereof is omitted.

<Third Embodiment>
A multicarrier transmission system 300 according to a third embodiment of the present invention is shown in FIG. Multicarrier transmission system 300, the configuration of the multicarrier transmission system 200 of the second embodiment, and the n strain compensators 11-n to compensate for the distortion of the n-th modulation signal B n, the n 2 multiplier 60- An n-th distortion compensation coefficient calculator 70-n for determining a distortion compensation coefficient for the nth modulation signal Bn based on the signal from n is added. In the third embodiment, unlike the second embodiment, the signal from the n 2 multiplier 60-n is input not to the amplitude phase controller 50 but to the nth distortion compensation coefficient calculator 70-n.

The third embodiment shows the implementation of distortion compensation of the amplifier 14-n in a multicarrier transmission system. The amplifier distortion compensation technique applicable to the multicarrier transmission system of the present invention is not limited, and for example, a well-known predistortion method, for example, a power series predistortion, can be employed. In the predistortion method, when it is assumed that the AM-AM conversion and AM-PM conversion in the amplifier 14-n can be expressed by the complex function G, the complex function F having the inverse characteristic of the complex function G is used for the amplifier 14-n. By modifying the input signal, the output of the amplifier 14-n is made linear with respect to the input signal. In the third embodiment, for each branch, the information corresponding to the complex function F (distortion compensation coefficient) is calculated by the nth distortion compensation coefficient calculator 70-n, and the nth distortion compensator 11-n is calculated by the nth distortion compensation. Based on the information obtained by the coefficient calculator 70-n, predistortion is performed on the nth modulation signal Bn . In actual use, the AM-AM conversion and AM-PM conversion characteristics of the amplifier 14-n change due to environmental temperature, aging, power supply voltage fluctuation, and the like. Therefore, in order to perform adaptive control with respect to such a characteristic change, the nth distortion compensation coefficient calculator 70-n updates the distortion compensation coefficient based on the output of the coupler 19-n. In addition, since the signal of each branch is a narrow band, feedforward distortion compensation in which the distortion compensation band is limited can be applied to the multicarrier transmission system of the present invention.

  The present invention is not limited to the above-described embodiment, and appropriate modifications are allowed without departing from the spirit of the present invention.
