Statistical Properties of Amplify and Forward Relay Links with Channel Estimation Errors

Tabataba, Foroogh; Sadeghi, Parastoo; Lamahewa, Tharaka; Pakravan, Mohammad


This paper studies the statistical properties of the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of the relay link in a cooperative wireless communication system with fixed gain relay in presence of channel estimation error. The SNR expression is derived and three different analytic approaches with different approximate assumptions are used to obtain the probability distribution function of the SNR and outage probability of the relay link. The first approach is the most accurate one in many cases, however it...[Show more]
