The research on distributed MIMO relay system has been attracting much attention. In this paper, a decode-and-forward scheme distributed MIMO relay system is examined. For upper bound of channel capacity, the distance between transceivers is optimized when the propagation loss is brought close to actuality. Additionally, the number of relay is optimized whether total antenna element is fixed or not. When the number of relay is assumed to be infinite, the dynamic relay selection method based on the transmission rate is proposed. We represent that with the proposed method, the transmit power and the number of relays are saving.
