In this paper, we propose a robust timing synchronization algorithm for wireless MAN OFDM systems. The proposed algorithm is composed of frame synchronization and FFT timing synchronization. The conventional correlation scheme for estimation of timing offset has an ambiguity in the detection of accurate symbol timing. The proposed scheme, however, shows a clear peak at the correct timing by using the conjugate-symmetric characteristic of preamble and is able to control the FFT window position continuously with the 1-st order loop filter. Simulation results demonstrate the superiority of the proposed algorithm.
