On the Energy Efficiency of Virtual MIMO Systems

Abstract : The major motivation behind this work is to optimize the sleep mode and transmit power level strategies in a small cell cluster in order to maximize the proposed energy efficiency metric. We study the virtual multiple input multiple output (MIMO) established with each base station in the cluster equipped with one transmit antenna and every user equipped with one receive antennas each. The downlink energy efficiency is analyzed taking into account the transmit power level as well as the implementation of sleep mode schemes. In our extensive simulations, we analyze and evaluate the performance of the virtual MIMO through zero-forcing schemes and the benefits of sleep mode schemes in small cell clusters. Our results show that for certain configurations of the system, implementing a virtual MIMO with several transmit antennas can be less energy efficient than a system with sleep mode using OFDMA with a single transmitting antenna for serving multiple users.
