In this paper, a new scheduler, called Channel-Condition and Packet-Length Dependent Packet Generalized Processor Sharing (CPLD-PGPS) scheduler is proposed for orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) wireless communication systems. Based on PGPS, CPLD scheduler considers the condition of the physical channel and the length of packets at the same time, and optimally allocates the sub-carriers in a frame. With this scheduler, improved system BER, and correspondingly superior PER

In order to reduce the algorithm complexity, a simplified CPLD is proposed, which maintains the system throughput as the original scheduler, and guarantees the system performance with properly set system parameters. Simulation results demonstrate the superior performance of the proposed scheduler.
