Initial Phase Effect on DOA Estimation in MMIMO Using Separated Steering Matrix

Bayan Mahdi Sabar, Yasmine M. Tabra


Providing simple and low complexity algorithms for estimating the direction of arrival in large systems using Massive MIMO is considered an important issue. In this paper a method with reduced complexity was proposed to estimate the direction of arrival in FD- MMIMO. The Separated Steering Matrix (SSM) algorithm uses two separated equations for estimating elevation and azimuth angles of Multi-users. This method reduces the complexity of calculating the covariance matrix by decreasing the size of this matrix. This technique is tested using 2D-MUSIC algorithm. Since the mobility of devices affects the accuracy of direction estimation, thus the effect of the initial phase of transmitted signal from mobile device is tested.
