In this paper, we propose a real-time subcarrier, bit, and power allocation algorithm for orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing-based multiuser communication systems in downlink transmission. Assuming that base stations know the channel gains of all subcarriers of all users, the proposed loading algorithm tries to minimize the required transmit power while satisfying the rate requirement and data error rate constraint of each user. The novel algorithm simultaneously determines subcarrier, bit, and power allocation by enhancing the suboptimal algorithm by Wong while having the same computational complexity. The proposed scheme offers better performance in terms of transmit power than that of Wong , as demonstrated in the simulation results, whereas the performance of the scheme in Wong was close to that of the optimal solution.
