Distributed Robust Multicell Coordinated Beamforming With Imperfect CSI: An ADMM Approach


Multicell coordinated beamforming (MCBF), where multiple base stations (BSs) collaborate with each other in the beamforming design for mitigating the intercell interference (ICI), has been a subject drawing great attention recently. Most MCBF designs assume perfect channel state information (CSI) of mobile stations (MSs); however CSI errors are inevitable at the BSs in practice. Assuming elliptically bounded CSI errors, this paper studies the robust MCBF design problem that minimizes the weighted sum power of BSs subject to worst-case signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) constraints on the MSs. Our goal is to devise a distributed optimization method to obtain the worst-case robust beamforming solutions in a decentralized fashion with only local CSI used at each BS and limited backhaul information exchange between BSs. However, the considered problem is difficult to handle even in the centralized form. We first propose an efficient approximation method for solving the nonconvex centralized problem, using semidefinite relaxation (SDR), an approximation technique based on convex optimization. Then a distributed robust MCBF algorithm is further proposed, using a distributed convex optimization technique known as alternating direction method of multipliers (ADMM). We analytically show the convergence of the proposed distributed robust MCBF algorithm to the optimal centralized solution. We also extend the worst-case robust beamforming design as well as its decentralized implementation method to a fully coordinated scenario. Simulation results are presented to examine the effectiveness of the proposed SDR method and the distributed robust MCBF algorithm.
