Abstract:
Adaptive antenna array technology will undoubtedly form a vital part of third generation cellular systems owing to not only confining the radiated energy associated with a mobile to a small volume on the downlink but also reducing the interference due to cochannel users on the uplink. The objective of this thesis is to develop signal enhancement schemes for adaptive antenna arrays for the purpose of enhancing the quality and capacity of direct sequence code division multiple access (DS-CDMA) systems. Firstly, The signal enhancement scheme using a real symmetric array covariance matrix (RSACM) method was proposed. This proposed scheme is composed of a unitary and persymmetric transformation methods. A real symmetric array covariance matrix has the same Toeplitz-plus-Hankel matrix structure that is produced by almost total noiseless data sequence. The second proposed signal enhancement scheme consists of the rotation of signal subspace (RSS) and Toeplitz matrix approximation (TMA) methods. This proposed scheme improved the system performance by reducing the interference- plus-noise effect from the complex array covariance matrix of the pre-correlation received signal vector. The third proposed signal enhancement scheme is a modified linear signal estimator (MLSE) which involves the rank N approximation by reducing total noise eigenvalues (RANE) and TMA methods. The aim of this proposed scheme is to improve the system performance by effectively reducing the interference-plus-noise effect from the post-correlation received signal. Secondly, the computational complexity and the performance for all proposed signal enhancement schemes in this thesis are investigated and compared. The signal enhancement scheme using the RSS+TMA and MLSE methods was also proposed for a multi-rate and multicell DS-CDMA systems. The relative other-cell interference factor was analysed for a multicell condition. Finally, the performance of all proposed signal enhancement schemes is shown to be much better than that of no signal enhancement method under a single cell, multicell, single rate, and multirate conditions.
