Although lithium-ion batteries have penetrated hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) and pure electric vehicles (EVs), they suffer from significant power capability losses and reduced energy at low temperatures. To evaluate those losses and to make an efficient design, good models are required for system simulation. Subzero battery operation involves nonclassical thermal behavior. Consequently, simple e...

In this paper, we give a unified performance analysis of interference alignment (IA) over multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) interference channels. Rather than the asymptotic characterization, i.e., degree of freedom (DOF) at high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), we focus on the other practical performance metrics, namely, outage probability, ergodic rate, and symbol error rate (SER). In particular... View full abstract»

• ### EM-Based Phase Noise Estimation in Vector OFDM Systems Using Linear MMSE Receivers

| | PDF (1752 KB) | HTML

Vector orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (V-OFDM) for single-transmit-antenna systems is a generalization of OFDM where single-carrier frequency-domain equalization and OFDM are just two special cases. Phase noise in a V-OFDM system leads to a common vector block phase error (CVBPE) and an intervector block carrier interference effect. Severe performance degradation may occur if these two...

We consider a multihop wireless linear network where multiple nodes are evenly spaced over a straight line.

Delay-tolerant networks (DTNs) rely on the mobility of nodes and their contacts to make up with the lack of continuous connectivity and, thus, enable message delivery from source to destination in a “store-carry-forward” fashion. Since message delivery consumes resource such as storage and power, some nodes may choose not to forward or carry others' messages while relying on others t... View full abstract»
