Performance Analysis of Beamforming Techniques in MU-MIMO Systems with Residual RF Impairments

Tamer, Ufuk
Yılmaz, Ali Özgür
Multiple-input multiple-output wireless communication systems substantially suffer from RF Impairments in the course of the physical implementation of transceivers. In this paper, we study the performance of beamforming techniques in MU-MIMO (Multi-User MIMO) system with one transmitter and two receivers. We showed that the interference cancellation beamforming is suitable in the proposed scenario. In addition, we study the performance of MU-MIMO system with the suitable beamforming technique by taking RF impairments into account.

Linearization of RF power amplifiers with memoryless baseband predistortion method
Kolcuoğlu, Turusan; Demir, Şimşek; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2011)
In modern wireless communication systems, advanced modulation techniques are used to support more users by handling high data rates and to increase the utilization efficiency of the limited RF spectrum. These techniques are sensitive to the nonlinear distortions due to their high peak to average power ratios. Main source of nonlinear distortion in transmitter topologies are power amplifiers that determine the overall efficiency and linearity of the transmitter. To increase linearity without sacrificing effi...
MIMO Communication Systems Using Hierarchical Modulation
Ugur, Yigit; Yılmaz, Ali Özgür (2014-04-25)
This paper considers multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) communication systems using hierarchical modulation. The disadvantage of the maximum-likelihood (ML) receiver is that the computational complexity increases exponentially with the number of transmit antennas and the number of bits per modulation symbol. Using MIMO communication system with 16-ary hierarchical quadrature amplitude modulation (16-HQAM), we propose a receiver structure which can be an alternative to maximum-likelihood (ML) receiver. 16...

In this paper, simultaneous wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT) is considered for multi-group multicasting relay networks where there is no direct link between the source and destination nodes. Each source transmits its own multicast stream to a group of users with the help of single antenna relays which use amplify-and-forward relay protocol. Each user has energy harvesting capability. A part of the received signal is used for information decoding while the rest is used for energy harvesting. T...
Joint Mitigation of IQ Imbalance and Power Amplifier Impairments by Real Valued Time Delay Neural Networks
Yeşil, Soner; Gürtunca, Burak; Yılmaz, Ali Özgür (2019-08-22)
This paper represents a neural network based joint mitigation of the IQ imbalance and power amplifier nonlinearities that cause degradation in the transmit signal quality of the wireless communication systems. A Real Valued Time Delay Neural Network architecture for this purpose has been verified on a hardware including cascaded NXP-MD8IC925 and NXPBLF8G10LS power amplifier components performing a total of 46dB gain. The test setup has been controlled over MATLAB in order to have a closed loop adaptive digi...
Evaluation of priority dependent and time scheduled MAC layer protocols for ad-hoc networks
Erdeğer, İsmail; Baykal, Buyurman; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2015)
Ad-hoc networks have very unique features, such as dynamic topologies, relatively limited bandwidth and wireless signal propagation schemes, which present various challenges for wireless communication. In this thesis, control mechanisms for channel access scheduling and topology in ad-hoc networks are evaluated, which utilize the information from two-hop neighborhood to cope with the communication difficulties in ad-hoc networks. Channel assignment is one of the most important topics for ad-hoc networks. Ch...
