An adaptive turbo coded modulation orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) schemes with power variable over subcarriers, variable over subbands, and constant over subcarriers is proposed. Our object is to improve the overall throughput under target bit-error-rate (BER) for OFDM transmissions. Simulation results indicate that our fixed power adaptation scheme exhibits a more than 7dB signal-noise-ratio (SNR) gain relative to nonadaptive turbo coded modulation, and about 2dB additional gain can be achieved with our variable power adaptation. We also discuss the effect of the amount of subbands on throughput performance in our adaptive scheme.
