  • Patent number: 11611977
    Abstract: Provided are a method and device for determining an application delay value of a minimum scheduling offset limit in a wireless communication system. In the method, when DCI including information notifying a change in a minimum scheduling offset limit value in slot n of a scheduling cell is received, the changed minimum scheduling offset limit value is applied in slot n+X of the scheduling cell. Here, the X value may be determined on the basis of two parameters such as Y and Z, wherein the Y value is a minimum scheduling offset limit value applied to a scheduled cell scheduled by the DCI, and the Z value is a value determined in advance according to a subcarrier interval of the scheduling cell. In addition, the Z value may be increased by 1 according to the temporal position at which the DCI is received in the slot n.
