Abstract

We show that the length of a composite channel is regarded up to the whole symbol duration for variable-gain relay (VGR), which generates the received power constant instantaneously. The enlarged channel length causes system burden, which is due to long-channel estimation, i.e., an increase in pilot overhead, a decrease in bandwidth efficiency, and a degradation of system performance. To prevent this effect and minimize the length of the composite channel, phase compensation of the sourcerelay (SR) link channel should be added to the VGR, although this addition increases complexity. A system that adopts VGR with phase compensation performs better and has higher bandwidth efficiency.
