Orthogonal Wavelet Division Multiplexing (OWDM) has been considered as an alternative of Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) in the recent years. OWDM has lower computational complexity and higher flexibility compared to its OFDM counterpart. The core component of OWDM is wavelet. Wavelet has been a much investigated and applied topic in digital image processing for a long time. Recently, it has drawn considerable attention of the researchers working in communication field. In this work we investigate the performances of OWDM under different channel conditions. We consider three channel conditions namely Additive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN), Rayleigh, Ricean, and frequency selective. We consider a number of wavelets namely Haar, Daubechies, Biorthogonal, Reverse Biorthogonal, Coiflets, and Symlets in OWDM design. For system model we choose Digital Video Broadcasting-Terrestrial (DVB-T). Originally DVB-T system was designed based on OFDM. In this work we use OWDM instead. The simulation results show OWDM outperforms OFDM in terms of bit error rate (BER), noise resiliency, and peak-to-average ration. The results also show that the Haar wavelet based OWDM outperforms other wavelets based OWDM system under all three considered three channel conditions. © 2016, Academy and Industry Research Collaboration Center (AIRCC).
