Adaptive resource allocation for SDMA-OFDMA systems with genetic algorithm
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper, we propose an adaptive resource allocation algorithm to maximize the sum data rate for spatial division multiplexing access (SDMA) orthogonal division multiple access (OFDMA) systems using genetic algorithm. We perform Zero forcing (ZF) beamforming at the transmitter constructing single and multiple beams for OFDMA systems with multiple transmit antennas. In order to reduce the complexity and convergence time of genetic algorithm (GA), we present an initial condition obtained by allocating the user to the subcarrier with maximum precoding gain. The proposed algorithm reduces the complexity without sacrificing the performance. We obtain the simulation results and compare them with the classical static and adaptive allocation methods. We show that the GA with the proposed initial condition increases the sum data rate compared to classical GA and reduces the convergence time significantly for SDMA-OFDMA systems.
