Point-to-point channel modelling within offshore wind farms

Mbogo, Joseph, Peng, Xiao Hong and Tang, Zuoyin (2018). Point-to-point channel modelling within offshore wind farms. IN: Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing. Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing . Springer.


From the perspective of several measurement campaigns in the offshore environment, it has been reported that the sea surface reflections are the main source of fading. We present a novel solution to this problem, by investigating the analytical implications of the propagation model which best fits the offshore channel characteristics. We also present a novel and yet simple implementation of receiver diversity which can mitigate the fading caused by sea surface reflections and ensure that the link is always steady even under extreme turbulent conditions.
