Unformatted text preview: Lecture 3  EE 359: Wireless Communications  Fall 2011 Shadowing, Combined Path Loss/Shadowing, Coverage Area, Model Parameters. Lecture Outline • Log Normal Shadowing • Combined Path Loss and Shadowing • Outage Probability • Cell Coverage Area • Model Parameters from Empirical Data 1. Lognormal Shadowing: • Statistical model for variations in the received signal amplitude due to blockage. • The received signal power with the combined effect of path loss (power falloff model) and shadowing is, in dB, given by P r (dB) = P u (dB) + 10 log 10 K 10 γ log 10 ( d/d ) + ψ (dB) . • Empirical measurements support the lognormal distribution for ψ : p ( ψ dB ) = 1 √ 2 πσ ψ dB exp bracketleftBigg ( ψ dB μ ψ dB ) 2 2 σ 2 ψ dB bracketrightBigg . • This empirical distribution can be justified by a LLN argument. • The autocorrelation based on measurements follows an autoregressive model: A ψ ( δ ) = σ 2 ψ dB e δ/X c = σ 2 ψ dB e vτ/X c , where X c is the decorrelation distance, which depends on the environment.is the decorrelation distance, which depends on the environment....
