ABSTRACT

Due to the large number of users and the time-varying characteristics of wireless channels, it is very tough to inform the transmitter of full channel information in real multi-user MIMO broadcast systems. On the other hand, the capacity of multi-user systems greatly depends on the knowledge of the channel at the transmitter while this is not always the case in single-user MIMO systems. In this paper, we investigate combined user selection and zero-forcing precoding schemes that use partial channel information, i.e., very low amount of channel information at the base station. We show that while greatly reducing the complexity and channel knowledge feedback load, the proposed schemes preserve the optimality of zero-forcing scheme in term of achievable ergodic sum capacity in limit of large number of active users.
