Rayleigh Channel model matlab code | Rayleigh MATLAB

This page mentions Rayleigh Channel model matlab code. It describes Rayleigh MATLAB simulation parameters with code script. Rayleigh Channel model PLOTS are also shown.

There are many channel models used for simulation in wireless signal transmission technologies. The most basic channel model used by designers is Rayleigh model. In this model, only Non Line of Sight(NLOS) components are simulated between transmitter and receiver. MATLAB provides built in function by name 'rayleighchan' as explained below along with rayleigh matlab code. This channel model is used to implement real time fading observed in wireless communication system. Refer complete article on fading basics and fading types >>.

The MATLAB function is as below:
Where, Ts=sampling time of the input signal in unit of seconds
Fd= Maximum doppler shift in unit of Hz.
Tau= raw vector consisting path delays in unit of seconds
PdB= raw vector cosisting path gains in unit of dB
chl_res= channel coefficients returned by matlab function rayleighchan

Rayleigh MATLAB Code

Following is the script written in MATLAB for Rayleigh channel model.

h.StoreHistory = true;
Rx_pkt_allones = filter(h, pkt_allones);
Rx_Packet = filter(h, Tx_Packet); % passing baseband IQ vector through rayleigh channel

Rayleigh Channel model PLOTS

Following are the plots which depicts rayleigh channel impulse response, baseband IQ vector without channel, baseband IQ vector with channel and channel response with baseband IQ vector consiting of all ones in the packet.
