PERFORMANCE EVALUATION OF UNIFORM CIRCULAR ARRAY AND UNIFORM LINEAR ARRAY ANTENNA IN AN URBAN MICRO CELL MULTIPLE FADING CHANNEL SCENERIO
In this paper, the performance evaluation of uniform circular array (UCA) and uniform linear array (ULA) antenna array in a Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) micro cell and outdoor to indoor were studied. Both antenna rays were considered using the WINNERII model. The channel model enables simulation
in both line-of-sight (LOS) and non-LOS propagation conditions. The model also allowed multiple indoor and outdoor propagation modelling. Performance with WINNER-generated channel coefficients was used to present the channel impulse response and frequency response of the simulation utilization. Computer Simulation result showed a better performance in terms of frequency and impulse response by UCA antenna over ULA in an urban micro-cell and urban micro outdoor to indoor scenario from the WINNERII model.These results can be applied in antenna assignment and design for massive MIMO systems of 5G implementation.
