Millimeter-wave (mmWave) channels, which occupy frequency ranges much higher than those being used in previous wireless communications systems, are utilized to meet the increased throughput requirements that come with 5G communications. The high levels of attenuation experienced by electromagnetic waves in these frequencies causes MIMO channels to have high spatial correlation. To attain desirable error performances, systems require knowledge about the channel correlations. In this thesis, a deep neural network aided method is proposed for the parametric estimation of the channel covariance matrix (CCM), which contains information regarding the channel correlations. When compared to some methods found in the literature, the proposed method yields satisfactory peformance in terms of both computational complexity and channel estimation errors.

Optimal Array size for Multiuser MIMO
Hameed, Khalid W.; Noras, James M.; Radwan, Ayman; Al-Turjman, Fadi; Rodriguez, Jonathan; Abd-Alhameed, Raed A. (2018-06-29)
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 optimu...
Sparse Reconstruction for Near-Field MIMO Radar Imaging Using Fast Multipole Method
Miran, Emre A.; Öktem, Sevinç Figen; Koç, Seyit Sencer (2021-01-01)
Radar imaging using multiple input multiple output systems are becoming popular recently. These applications typically contain a sparse scene and the imaging system is challenged by the requirement of high quality real-time image reconstruction from under-sampled measurements via compressive sensing. In this paper, we deal with obtaining sparse solution to near- field radar imaging problems by developing efficient sparse reconstruction, which avoid storing and using large-scale sensing matrices. We demonstr...
Base Station Power Optimization for Green Networks Using Reinforcement Learning
Aktaş, Semih; Alemdar, Hande (2021-08-31)
The next generation mobile networks have to provide high data rates, extremely low latency, and support high connection density. To meet these requirements, the number of base stations will have to increase and this increase will lead to an energy consumption issue. Therefore “green” approaches to the network operation will gain importance. Reducing the energy consumption of base stations is essential for going green and also it helps service providers to reduce operational expenses. However, achieving ener...
HYBRID BEAMFORMING WITH TWO BIT RF PHASE SHIFTERS IN SINGLE GROUP MULTICASTING
Demir, Özlem Tuğfe; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2016-03-25)
In this paper, an efficient hybrid beamforming architecture combining analog and digital beamforming is proposed to reduce the number of radio frequency (RF) chains. It provides a good compromise between the higher degree of freedom of digital beamforming and hardware cost and complexity. In this hybrid system, two bit RF phase shifters are used as analog beamformers due to the fact that this enables the conversion of the combinatorial optimization problem to a continuous programming formulation. The overal...
Waveguide-based Monopulse Wideband Travelling-Wave Array
GULTEPE, Gokhan; DOGAN, Doganay; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem (2017-07-14)
A novel, travelling-wave, waveguide antenna structure with monopulse capability in the two principal planes is proposed with increased frequency bandwidth. The array consists of two interleaved waveguide arrays which provide appropriate excitations to the antenna elements above the waveguide to generate proper sum and difference patterns. With the use of printed antennas and the elimination of the narrow frequency characteristics of the slots on the waveguides, the bandwidth of the array is greatly improved.
