This paper investigates the optimal number of antennas at a base station, in contrast to what has been accepted in the past: that increasing the number of antennas at base station always enhances performance. In this study, we show that increasing the number of antennas does not always improve the desired performance. Additionally, such increase in antennas consumes more power in transmission and adds to the computation complexity, which in turn needs more time and is more difficult to implement. The optimum number of antennas has been evaluated using simulations. The simulation results show that the optimal ratio equals to 1.2 times the number of active users in each time frame.

Caylar, Selcuk; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal; Dural, Guelbin (2007-06-15)
In smart antenna systems, mutual coupling between elements can significantly degrade the processing algorithms [1]. In this paper mutual coupling effects on Modified Neural Multiple Source Tracking Algorithm (MN-MUST) has been studied. MN-MUST algorithm applied to the Uniform Circular Array (UCA) geometry for the first time. The validity of MN-MUST algorithm in the presence of mutual coupling has been proved for both Uniform Linear Array (ULA) and UCA. Simulation results of MN-MUST algorithm are provided fo...

Massive MIMO Channel Estimation With an Untrained Deep Neural Network
Balevi, Eren; Doshi, Akash; Andrews, Jeffrey G. (2020-03-01)
This paper proposes a deep learning-based channel estimation method for multi-cell interference-limited massive MIMO systems, in which base stations equipped with a large number of antennas serve multiple single-antenna users. The proposed estimator employs a specially designed deep neural network (DNN) based on the deep image prior (DIP) network to first denoise the received signal, followed by conventional least-squares (LS) estimation. We analytically prove that our LS-type deep channel estimator can app...
Wideband omnidirectional and sector coverage antenna arrays for base stations
Alatan, Lale (2018-01-01)
By using parallel strip line fed printed dipole antennas as array elements, an omnidirectional antenna array and a wide angle sector coverage array operating in octave band are designed. A maximum deviation of ±1.25 dB from the omnidirectional pattern is achieved for the omnidirectional array, and the average gain of the antenna was measured as being 5 dB in the 1.35–2.7GHz band. For the sector coverage array, a special reflector design is utilized to maintain a half power beam width of around 115◦ with a s...
Analysis of a calibration method for airborne receive-only phased array antennas with self-alignment
Elik, Furkan Bahadır; Demir, Şimşek; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2022-9-15)
The calibration of the phased array antennas plays crucial role to ensure the performance of the beam steering capability. Most of the guided missiles utilize phased arrays, thus, the calibration routines should be optimized. Since guided missiles are spatially limited, calibration hardware should not introduce new geometry to the antenna. This limits possible calibration methods of the antennas on the missiles. This study develops a calibration method for semi-active guided missiles and analyzes this metho...
