This paper proposes an adaptive co-channel interference -steering algorithm for highly correlated receive antenna channels with an aim of reducing the power consumption at the receiver. With this algorithm, the receiver activates as many antennas as necessary to maintain the residual total interference instantaneous power within a tolerable range, which can be set to guarantee a target performance level. The mode of operation does not require perfect knowledge of the statistical ordering of interfering signals instantaneous powers, which further reduces the complexity of implementation. It is shown that the arbitrary interference cancelation technique and no cancelation scenario can be studied as limiting cases of the proposed scheme. Analytical expressions for the statistics of the residual total interference instantaneous power are derived, which are then used to obtain results for the average number of active antennas and system outage performance. Numerical studies supported by simulations are presented to clarify the usefulness of the proposed scheme. ©2010 IEEE.
