Abstract: Multiple-Input-Multiple-Output (MIMO) system improves performance as well as the capacity of the wireless system. The use of large number of antennas in a MIMO system increases the hardware complexities and also its price. To overcome this, MIMO systems that activate single transmit antenna at a time, namely transmit antenna selection (TAS) is considered in this paper. Selection combining (SC) and Maximal ratio combining (MRC) are carried out at the receiver over ∝-μ fading channels. Expressions for outage probability and average bit error rate (ABER) are derived considering TAS/SC as well as TAS/MRC MIMO systems. All the derived expressions are validated by Monte-Carlo simulation results.
