In order to reduce feedback while maintaining user performance in multiuser orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) relay system, feedback mechanism based on user traffic rate is proposed. From the aspects of feedback outage probability, user weighted channel gain related to user traffic rate is compared with the system threshold. The higher user traffic rate is, the bigger the user traffic weight becomes. So the high traffic rate user has greater probability to be fed back, which can support different traffic rate. Simulation results show that the proposed feedback mechanism can bring more feedback sub-carriers to the user with high traffic rate.
