Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) became a popular transmission approach since it suppresses intersymbol interference (ISI) due to large channel delays. However, intercarrier interference (ICI) for high mobility receivers yields corrupted channel estimates for pilot-aided OFDM channel estimation. Thus, this paper presents a novel time-variant channel estimation approach to mitigate this system impairment. We linearize the time-variant channel and determine the expansion point by channel estimates corresponding to the current OFDM symbol, and we get the unknown channel slopes by an iterative data and channel estimation. Our algorithm combines a least squares or a minimum norm channel slope estimation and the detection of the channel paths. It sets any channel path power equal zero once the corresponding power estimate is smaller than a given threshold. Our algorithm exploits the large channel correlations between the cyclic prefix and the successive OFDM symbol optimally. These maximum correlations reason the superiority of ICI mitigation with cyclic prefixes compared to channel slope estimation with adjacent OFDM symbols, which needs at least twice the number of pilot symbols. Additionally, our iterative ICI mitigation reduces noise impairments.
