Cooperative relay communication for wireless networks has been extensively studied due to its ability to mitigate fading effectively via spatial diversity. In this paper, we propose a balanced transmit scheme in cooperative relay communication with decode-and-forward DF) scheme. The proposed scheme selects the feedback bits to obtain the maximum cooperative diversity gain. The simulation results show that the proposed scheme improves the bit error rate BER) performance as compare with a conventional scheme.

무선 네트워크를 위한 협력 릴레이 통신은 공간 다이버시티를 통해 페이딩현상을 효율적으로 감소 시킬 수 있기 때문에 최근 활발히 연구되어 오고 있다. 본 논문에서 협력 릴레이 통신환경에서 decode-and-forward 기법을 적용한 balanced 전송 기법을 제안한다. 제안된 기법은 최고의 협력 다이버시티 이득을 얻기 위해 피드백 비트들을 선택한다. 제안된 기법은 기존의 기법과 비교하여 비트 오류 확률 성능을 증가시킬 수 있는 것을 모의 실험을 통해 증명하였다.
