Efficient Antenna Selection in MIMO Correlated Channels
Multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems can bring many advantages to wireless communication but suffer from high cost and complexity due to the multiple RF chains. In such systems, antenna selection is introduced as a technique to ease these problems.This paper addressedthe problem of antenna selection in spatially correlated channels. We propose an effective antenna selection method in terms of capacity maximization based on the transmit and/or the receive correlation matrix instead of the instantaneous channel state information (ICSI).Simulations will be used to validate our analysis and demonstrate that the number of required RF chains can be significantly decreased using our low complexity algorithm whileachieving very close performance to the ICSI-based method.
