Abstract

In satellite DS/CDMA communication systems, power control (PC) is critical, and only open loop power control (OLPC) is feasible due to the large propagation delay. In this paper, we propose an adaptive OLPC method for DS/CDMA satellite communication systems based on a Markov chain channel model. Then, under the assumption that multiuser Interference Cancellation (IC) is employed, we will derive the Erlang capacity of the satellite DS/CDMA system with the OLPC scheme. It will be shown that IC and Power Control Error (PCE) affects the Erlang capacity significantly. In addition, dual-satellite diversity will be considered and we will show that diversity can improve the Erlang capacity of such system greatly.
