Channel estimation is an important and necessary function performed by modern wireless receivers. The goal of channel estimation is to measure the effects of the channel on known or partially known transmission. The usual practice in acquiring knowledge about a channel is to model the channel and then acquire the parameters involved in the model. This paper proposes a variable partial update model for adaptive communication channel estimation with a view to improving signal error at the

The performance of the proposed model was compared with the full update model. The evaluation results indicated that the proposed model performed better than the full update model in terms of computational complexity, memory load, and convergence rate.
