摘要：In this paper, we consider a shared-antenna full-duplex massive MU-MIMO system and prove that the self-interference (SI) at the base station (BS) can be suppressed, though the direct-path SI exists and the signal/SI channel is imperfectly estimated. The BS is assumed to employ zero-forcing (ZF) or maximal-ratio transmission/maximal-ratio combining (MRT/MRC) method to linearly process signals. We propose a precoded SI channel training scheme by employing orthogonal sequences and downlink precoding, so the SI channel can be estimated like the signal channel with a much lower dimension. Based on the channel estimation, we further analyze the SI suppression by combining the SI removal and the large-scale antenna linear processing (LALP) method. Numerical results show that an additional 36 dB SI can be suppressed by combining the SI removal and the LALP suppression. We derive the tight closed-form lower bounds of the achievable rates for the combined suppression. Finally, we maximize the system spectral efficiency and energy efficiency based on the simulation and closed-form approximations.
