MIMO performance evaluation
|XPR sweep specification|
The script is used for calculating mean effective gain (MEG), envelope correlation coefficient (ECC) based on . Using the Maths option for the 2D graph, the MEG ratio can also be plotted.
Currently, the script only supports 2 channel MIMO: the 2 channels are simulated as 2 separate configurations each with its own Far-field request. The user can choose to Sweep XPR (cross polarization ratio), sweep frequency or both. The propagation environment can also be defined, the default is uniform, with P_phi = P_theta = 1/(4pi).
Plots of ECC vs. XPR or MEG vs. frequency are plotted depending on the selected options.
