Codebook-Aided DOA Estimation Algorithms for Massive MIMO System
AbstractThe conventional direction of arrival (DOA) estimation algorithm is not effective with the tremendous complexity due to the large-scale array antennas in a massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) system. A new frame structure for downlink transmission is presented. Then, codebook-aided (C-aided) algorithms are proposed based on this frame structure that can fully exploit the priori information under channel codebook feedback mechanism. An oriented angle range is scoped through the codebook feedback, which is drastically beneficial to reduce computational burden for DOA estimation in massive MIMO systemss. Compared with traditional DOA estimation algorithms, our proposed C-aided algorithms are computationally efficient and meet the demand of future green communication. Simulations show the estimation effectiveness of C-aided algorithms and advantage for decrement of computational cost. View Full-Text
