Notice: As of 2014 and for the forthcoming years, the publication frequency/periodicity of WSEAS Journals is adapted to the 'continuously updated' model. What this means is that instead of being separated into issues, new papers will be added on a continuous basis, allowing a more regular flow and shorter publication times. The papers will appear in reverse order, therefore the most recent one will be on top.

ABSTRACT: This paper analyses the outage probability and average bit error rate (ABER) of a multiuser Transmit Antenna Selection/Maximal-ratio combining (TAS/MRC) system over equally correlated η-μ fading channels. In TAS/MRC system the best antenna, based on channel state information (CSI) is used for information transmission and MRC is performed in the receiver. The expressions of PDF for SNR of the system, outage probability and ABER have been derived considering equally correlated model of η-μ fading channels. Study of correlation effect and the number of diversity branches on the performance of the communication model have been carried out for different fading parameters and reported in the numerical result and discussion section. This can be a guideline to the design engineers to optimize their performance of communication model. The results are also validated with the computer simulation and found to be correct.
