In this paper, the performance of multi-branch dual-hop relay systems with maximal ratio combining (MRC) receiver operating in Nakagami-m fading channels is analyzed. We derive closed-form expressions for the moments of signal to noise ratio (SNR) at the output of maximal ratio combiner. From these moments, other important performance figures such as… CONTINUE READING
