Abstract

In this paper, the decremental effect of beamforming with feedback delay on the performance of a two-hop amplify-and-forward (AF) relay network over Rayleigh-fading channels is investigated. An antenna configuration in which the source and the destination are equipped with multiple antennas, whereas the relay is equipped with a single antenna, is assumed. We derive new expressions for the outage probability and the average bit error rate (BER), which are useful for a large number of modulation schemes. To gain further insights, simple outage probability and average BER approximations at high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) are also presented. It is shown that, whenever a feedback delay exists, the network is not capable of offering diversity gains. Furthermore, source and relay power allocation results show significantly different behavior with feedback delay. Numerical results supported by simulations are provided to show that feedback delay can severely degrade the performance of the considered AF relay system.
