ABSTRACT A mathematical expression for the outage probability of a selection combining diversity receiver with an arbitrary number of input branches is presented for exponentially correlated K fading channels. Numerical and simulation results are plotted and the effect of correlation, number of diversity branches and fading parameter on the outage performance of the receiver is studied. Results suggest that a correlation coefficient less than 0.5 may be used in practice.

    ABSTRACT: Outage probability of a selection combiner (SC) receiver is analyzed over exponentially correlated composite Weibull-gamma fading channels. An expression for the joint probability density function (PDF) of multivariate, exponentially correlated Weibull-gamma distributed random variable is obtained. Using this joint PDF, we derive an expression for the outage probability of a SC receiver with arbitrary number of input branches. Obtained expressions are numerically evaluated and the effect of fading parameters, correlation coefficient and diversity order on the outage are studied.

    ABSTRACT: Under the scenario of an underlay cognitive radio network, we propose in this paper two adaptive schemes using switched transmit diversity and adaptive modulation in order to increase the spectral efficiency of the secondary link and maintain a desired performance for the primary link. The proposed switching efficient scheme (SES) and bandwidth efficient scheme (BES) use the scan and wait combining technique (SWC) where a transmission occurs only when a branch with an acceptable performance is found, otherwise data is buffered. In these schemes, the modulation constellation size and the used transmit branch are determined to minimize the average number of switched branches and to achieve the highest spectral efficiency given the fading channel conditions, the required error rate performance, and a peak interference constraint to the primary receiver (PR). For delay-sensitive applications, we also propose two variations of the SES and BES schemes using power control (SES-PC and BES-PC) where the secondary transmitter (ST) starts sending data using a nominal power level which is selected in order to minimize the average delay introduced by the SWC technique. We demonstrate through numerical examples that the BES scheme increases the capacity of the secondary link when compared to the SES scheme. This spectral efficiency improvement comes at the expense of an increased average number of switched branches and thus an increased average delay. We also show that the SES-PC and the BES-PC schemes minimize the average delay while satisfying the same spectral efficiency as the SES and BES schemes, respectively.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we analyze the error probability and ergodic capacity performance for diversity reception schemes over generalized- $K$ fading channels using a mixture gamma (MG) distribution. With high accuracy, the MG distribution can approximate a variety of composite fading channel models and provide mathematically tractable properties. In contrast to previous analysis approaches that require complicated signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) statistics, it is shown that a distribution of the received SNR for diversity reception schemes is composed of a weighted sum of gamma distributions by exploiting the properties of the MG distribution. Then, based on this result, we can derive the exact average symbol error probability and simple closed-form expressions of diversity and array gains for maximal ratio combining and selection combining. In addition, an expression of the ergodic capacity for these schemes is obtained in independent and identically distributed fading channels. Our results lead to meaningful insights for determining the system performance with parameters of the MG distribution. We show that our analysis can be expressed with any number of receiver branches over various fading conditions. Numerical results confirm that the derived error probability and ergodic capacity expressions match well with the empirical results.
