This paper proposes a symbol-by-symbol-based multilevel transmit power control (MTPC) scheme for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) based adaptive modulation system (AMS) to achieve high quality broadband wireless transmission for high mobility terminals. In the proposed system, delay profile for each OFDM symbol is estimated by linearly extrapolating previously received delay profile information (DPI) sequence to improve tracking ability of OFDM based AMS with MTPC to the fast fading variation. Moreover, 2-branch reception diversity is applied to reduce dynamic range and variation speed of the multipath fading. Computer simulation confirms that the proposed system is effective in supporting higher mobility terminals with keeping high transmission quality.
