           What is the deviation between the result calculate by the formula and the result measured by the calibration source for the USRP N210?  For example,when I ues the formula:10*log10(var(x))+30 to calculate the power of the receiver data is -20dbm.What is the true range for the true result?

    I use the usrp to receive data,and I save it to a file.I read all the data.Then:
I use the formula to calculate the power:

    Is it the right way to calculate the power under the ofdm?

Instantaneous signal power is proportional to:


You can average that to whatever interval you want, and then scale (perhaps converting into dB, as above).  But to determine *absolute*
  power at the antenna terminals you'll need a known calibration source or two, and use that to come up with calibration constants for
  your particular setup of frequency/gain/bandwidth/sample-rate.
