I am currently trying to equalize my OFDM based transmitter and receiver with BPSK modulation. Its respective Matlab code is shown below. I tried to equalize the channel by adding zero padding of zeros(1, 64) to the channel since this OFDM system has 64 subcarriers and the channel between the transmitter and receiver has 10 taps; The code below shows the zero padding I added:
% Generate channel
channel = (randn(1, 10) + 1i * randn(1, 10)) / sqrt(2);
channel = [channel zeros(1, 64)];
However, when I ran the code, I get the following error in my "Loop over SNR range" within the for loop which states:
Arrays have incompatible sizes for this operation.
Error in ofdm_bpsk_ji_3 (line 102)
noisy_channel = channel + sqrt(noise_var/2)*(randn(1,10)+1i*randn(1,10));
So, I think the zero padding I added previously to the channel before the for loop is causing an iteration error for the noisy channel.
So I got rid of the zero padding and then added the following code in order to estimate and compensate for the channel response for equalization.
% Generate training sequence
training_seq = ones(1, block_size);
I added this before the channel generation and before the OFDM transmission but the symbols are received in a scattered fashion and my BER vs SNR plot does not look good. I can use some advice on how to equalize my channel correcly. Thanks in advance!

As per my understanding you want to equalize the channel in OFDM.
You can use 'ofdmEqualize' function which performs the MMSE equalization.
Please refer to the following documentation for more information.
I hope it helps!
