Discrete bit loading for multicarrier systems based on the greedy power allocation (GPA) algorithm is considered in this paper. A new suboptimal scheme that independently performs GPA on groups of subcarriers and therefore can significantly reduce complexity compared to the standard GPA is proposed. These groups are formed in an initial step of a uniform power allocation (UPA) algorithm. In order to more efficiently allocate the available transmit power, two power re-distribution algorithms are further introduced by including a transfer of residual power between groups. Simulation results show that the two proposed algorithms can achieve near optimal performance in two separate and distinctive SNR regions. We demonstrate by analysis how these methods can greatly simplify the computational complexity of the GPA algorithm.
