Reply To: Types of fading


Dear Darren,

In Vienna LTE-A System Level Simulator, large scale fading effects (macroscopic path-loss and shadow fading) are denoted by specific models, e.g., for distance dependent path-loss you can find several models under +macroscopic_pathloss_models such as the ones described in 3GPP TR 36.873, TR 25.814, etc.; for modeling shadow fading, a so called ‘claussen’ method is implemented. This method is set with the following command: LTE_config.shadow_fading_type = ‘claussen’, and creates a correlated map of the shadow fading based on the given standard deviation.

More details about ‘claussen’ method is given in the original paper of H. Claussen “Efficient modeling of channel maps with correlated shadow fading in mobile radio systems”.

Best regards,
