This paper focuses on the throughput performance enhancement in the single cell multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) downlink system model. For better quality of service, this paper proposes the scheme that increases system throughput and improves the spectral efficiency. Specifically, the signal transmission and detection schemes are proposed by using multiple dimensions. At the transmitter side, two dimensions (power and space) are adopted at the same time. To achieve multiple access (MA), the space domain is exploited by using a block diagonalization (BD) precoding technique, and the power domain is exploited to transmit more data symbols. At the receiver, the signal detection structure corresponding to a transmitter is also proposed. In the simulation results, comparisons of throughput performance are presented in various aspects. As a result, the proposed scheme outperforms the conventional schemes using only one dimension in terms of throughput. This paper shows strong performance in MU-MIMO senarios by adopting multiple dimensions. View Full-Text
