In this paper, we propose a new and rather simple grouped-subcarrier allocation algorithms with proportional fairness among users in downlink OFDM transmission. The proposed algorithm tries to minimize the required transmit power while satisfying the rate requirement and BER constraint of each user. Subcarrier and power allocation are performed in two steps. We are mainly focusing on the subcarrier allocation step. First subcarriers are grouped to reduce the computational complexity of the allocation algorithm. Then we employ proportional constraints in terms of rate ratios to assure each user to achieve the target data rate in advance. Simulation results show that this low complexity resource allocation scheme achieves better performance than the fixed frequency division approach and shows comparable performance compared to previously derived suboptimal resource distribution schemes. It is also shown that with rate constraints the capacity is distributed more fairly and rationally among users
