Determination of Performances of the First and the Second Order of Wireless Communication System in the Presence of Fading, Shadowing and Cochannel Interference by Using Different Mathematical Methods

Professor Dragana Krstic
Faculty of Electronic Engineering
University of Nis

Abstract: Radio waves are subjected to refractions, reflections and diffractions that cause multipath propagation resulting in variations of the signal envelope and degradation of the wireless communication system performances of the first and the second order. Large obstacles between transmitter and receiver cause signal shadowing resulting in comparatively slow variations of average power, and consequently, degradation of the system performance. For interference limited channels in cellular system, the effect of Gaussian noise on the system performance can be ignored, making the propagation effects dominant performance degradation mechanism. Diversity reception can be used to simultaneously reduce multipath fading effects, shadowing effects and cochannel interference effects on the wireless communication systems’ performance. Analytical work on determining characteristics of a mobile radio system that operates over composite fading and shadowing channels under cochannel interference will be presented in this lecture. Desired signal and interferences are under Gamma shadowed multipath fading. First, the formulas for probability density function and cumulative distribution unction (CDF) of the signal-to-interference ratio (SIR) will be derived in the closed-forms. Then, the closed-form expressions for the first and the second order system performance will be presented.
