Consider a multiuser system where an arbitrary number of users communicate with a distributed receive array over independent Rayleigh fading paths. The receive array performs minimum mean squared error (MMSE) or zero forcing (ZF) combining and perfect channel state information is assumed at the receiver. This scenario is well-known and exact analysis is possible when the receive antennas are located in a single array. However, when the antennas are distributed, the individual links all have…

Performance assessment of correlated Rayleigh‐inverse Gaussian fading channel over distributed MIMO systems with ZF detectors

A systematic characterisation of Rayleigh-inverse Gaussian (RIG) distribution is provided for modelling the channel of distributed multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems with zero-forcing (ZF) receiver in the presence of transmit antenna correlation.

The authors' findings suggest that with restrictions on the size of the ULA, the expected SINR saturates with increasing operating signal-to-noise-ratio (SNR) and BS antennas, and the presence of strong line-of-sight (LoS) has an opposite effect.
