Abstract

We investigate outage performance of fixed-gain and variable-gain amplify-and-forward (AF) full-duplex (FD) relaying systems under residual loop-interference (LI) in non-identical Nakagami-m fading channels. New exact outage probability expressions are derived analytically in a single-integral form by using the cumulative distribution function approach. Moreover, tight lower-bound and asymptotic outage probability expressions are derived in closed-form for the evaluated systems. It is shown that the fixed-gain AF-FD relaying outperforms the variable-gain AF-FD relaying when LI power and/or signal-to-noise ratio increase. The analytical results are verified by Monte-Carlo simulations.
