Summary: 
An improved spectrum sensing method based on PN autocorrelation (PNAC) for Digital Terrestrial Television Multimedia Broadcasting (DTMB) system is proposed in this paper. The low bound of miss-detection probability and the decision threshold for a given false alarm probability are studied. The performances of proposed method and existing methods are compared through computer simulations under both non-time dispersive channel and time dispersive channel. Simulation results show that the proposed method has better performance than the original PNAC-based method, and is more robust to both carrier frequency offset (CFO) and time dispersion of the channel than the existing method based on PN cross-correlation (PNCC).
