An adaptive subcarrier allocation (SA) algorithm is proposed for both the enhancement of system capacity and the practical implementation in a clustered OFDM system. The proposed algorithm is based on the two dimensional comparison of the channel gain in both rows and columns of the channel matrix to achieve higher system capacity. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed algorithm outperforms the SA algorithm based on only one dimensional comparison in terms of system capacity, and furthermore, it performs as well as the optimal SA algorithm at relatively low computational cost.
