Sum-capacity of Uplink Multiband Satellite Communications with Nonlinear Impairments

Abstract : A compact and closed-form expression of capacity is derived for a uplink multiband satellite system in the presence of nonlinear interference. The nonlinear effect comes from the satellite high-power amplifier modeled by a Volterra series expansion. The derivations reveal that the nonlinear interference can provide a constructive power contribution that could be used to increase the transmission rate. Consequently, decoders designed by viewing this interference as only an additional noise are suboptimal. Numerical results confirm this claim and also shows that an appropriate power allocation amongst the subbands may be of interest.
