In massive multiple input multiple output (MIMO) systems, major challenges are present due to the large number of active antennas and radio frequency (RF) chains,suchasincreasedpowerconsumptionandcomputationcomplexity. Transmitantennaselection(TAS)isbeinginvestigatedasasolutiontotacklethesechallenges. In this thesis, a dynamic transmit antenna selection technique is proposed whichcanmaximizethesumrateofamultiuser(MU)-MIMOcommunicationsystem. In order to satisfy the objective, the number of transmit antennas required is determined by remodeling it as a binary Knapsack Problem (KP) and then extending to a Multiple KP (MKP) for MU-MIMO. Furthermore, an improvement in the decision making is also proposed with the introduction of a flexible decision criteria, whilst reducing the structure of the MKP to resemble that of a single binary KP. Additionally, comparisons of the KP based algorithms are done with two low complexity techniques, which are the sequential selection algorithm and random selection algorithm. Results show that the KP based techniques outperform these low complexity techniques. The modified binary KP algorithm is also superior to that of the MKP, as it is not sensitive to solving as binary knapsack sub-problems. The proposed technique has good performance for different antenna selection measures and is suitable to ensure communication efficiency in future wireless communication systems.
