    Simulating an OFDM channel

    Hi everyone, I'm trying to simulate an OFDM following a few steps, and I'm stuck at the first: The first step: You have a channel with independent zero mean complex Gaussian taps along with exponentially decaying power profile E{|hk|2|}=e-k/3 with k ∈ [0,21] First of all, does this notation...

    Thermodynamics: Steam Plant

    I can't what's wrong with W3-4. You know the first law of thermodynamics (for open systems) states: Q`-W`=m`(Δh+ΔKE+ΔPE) [kj/s] Dividing both sides by m` q-w=(Δh+ΔKE+ΔPE) [kj/kg] Since q=ΔKE=ΔPE=0 -w=Δh --> w=-Δh --> w=h1-h2 Isn't that right?
