Performance of semi-orthogonal user selection for multiuser MISO systems
MetadataShow full item record
In MISO multiuser downlink wireless communication systems with precoding at the transmission, the capacity depends on the channel state information at the transmitter. Since the feedback data rate increases with the number of users in the cell it is important to perform a selection of the users at the receiver. In this paper, we evaluate the performance of different user selection algorithms at the receiver side through the noisy uplink channel. We evaluate the effect of the noisy channel on the classical norm criterion and on a criterion based on the orthogonality between the user channels. Without cooperation between the users, we only allow users that are semi-orthogonal to feedback their channel information as analog and quantized information to the base station through the noisy uplink channel. We propose an algorithm to reduce the noise effect on the analog feedback for semi-orthogonal user selection algorithm. We show that the semi-orthogonal criterion with quantized feedback gives better performance compared to the norm criterion for perfect and noisy uplink channels.
