Abstract—Pulse blanking is a widely used method to eliminate impulsive interference in orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) receiver. To analyze the effect of Inter Carrier Interference (ICI) caused by pulse blanking on the performance of symbol error rate (SER) for OFDM receiver, the analytical expression of signal to noise ratio (SNR) for OFDM receiver with pulse blanking is derived. The SER of OFDM receiver with pulse blanking over AWGN, Rayleigh and Ricean fading channel are also analyzed quantitatively based on the SNR expression. Simulation results validate the accuracy of our derived formulas.

Index Terms—OFDM, impulse interference, pulse blanking; SNR, SER, AWGN, rayleigh, ricean
