ABSTRACT

In this paper, we have proposed a hybrid transmission scheme which involves beam selection and antenna selection techniques over a MIMO system operating with vary antenna array. Optimal subset of transmit antennas are selected via fast successive selection scheme designed to optimize the target eigenbeam. Optimal eigenbeams corresponding to the largest singular values of the new MIMO channel formed by the selected antennas are exploited for data transmission. To evaluate the performance of the proposed scheme, different array structures, including uniform linear array (ULA) and including uniform circular array (UCA) are employed in the simulations. The transmitter is assumed to be surrounded by scattering objects while the receiver is postulated to be free from scattering objects. The Laplacian distribution of angle of arrival (AoA) of a signal reaching the receiver is postulated. The results presented by this paper indicate that the proposed scheme can significantly improve the performance of data transmission in term of symbol error rate (SER).
