Performance Analysis of Multi-Carrier Two-Way Cooperative Communication with Relay Selection Diversity

Muhammad Abrar, Xiang Gui, and Amal Punchihewa
Abstract—Cooperative communication provides most of the advantages as multi-antenna systems due to availability of independent propagation paths between mobile terminals and the base station. In this paper we investigate the performance of Multi-carrier Two-way Two-hop (TW-TH) cooperative communication network in the presence of Rayleigh fading channel. We analyze a simple relay selection diversity scheme in TW-TH cooperative network. The two power allocation schemes with relay selection are discussed. Performance analysis shows that relay selection diversity scheme provides better performance than fixed relaying regardless of the availability of direct path between users.

Index Terms—Cooperative communication, cooperative diversity, relay selection, two-way relaying
