%T Performance of Nakagami Fading Channel over Energy Detection Based Spectrum Sensing
%V 94
%X Spectrum sensing is the main feature of cognitive
radio technology. Spectrum sensing gives an idea of detecting the
presence of the primary users in a licensed spectrum. In this paper we
compare the theoretical results of detection probability of different
fading environments like Rayleigh, Rician, Nakagami-m fading
channels with the simulation results using energy detection based
spectrum sensing. The numerical results are plotted as Pf Vs Pd for
different SNR values, fading parameters. It is observed that
Nakagami fading channel performance is better than other fading
channels by using energy detection in spectrum sensing. A MATLAB
simulation test bench has been implemented to know the performance
of energy detection in different fading channel environment.
