Cyclic Autocorrelation based Spectrum Sensing: Theoretical Derivation Framework

Abstract : In this article, we propose a theoretical framework to derive the stochastic behavior of the cyclic autocorrelation power (CAP). This function is especially used in cyclostationarity-based spectrum sensing for its robustness to noise uncertainty and its low computational cost. We first express the theoretical probability density function (PDF) of the cyclic autocorrelation power-which proves to follow a central scaled (respectively non-central) chi-square distribution if the received samples consist of additive Gaussian noise (respectively noise plus a cyclostationary signal). In order to verify the accuracy of the proposed theoretical derivation, simulation results are then provided in terms of detection and false alarm probabilities.
