Interference Alignment with Improved Stream Selection in Heterogeneous Networks
MetadataShow full item record
In this article, interference that occurs in heterogeneous networks is studied and a new stream selection approach with an interference alignment solution is presented. In the proposed algorithm, stream selection starts with the streams that belongs to the pico cell users and continues to select the strongest streams that increase the total sum rate. The power of each stream with the precoding and the postcoding vectors are calculated by performing singular value decomposition (SVD). Virtual channels that belong to the selected stream are calculated by using precoding and postcoding vectors. After the selection procedure, the interferences between the selected stream and the remaining streams are mitigated by orthogonally projecting the channel matrices of the remaining streams to the virtual channels of the selected stream.
