The authors present and analyse a predictive closed-loop power control (CLPC) scheme, which employs a comb-type sample arrangement to effectively compensate multiple power control group delays over mobile fading channels. The authors consider both least squares and recursive least squares filters in our CLPC scheme. The effects of channel estimation error, prediction filter error and power control bit transmission error on the performance of the proposed CLPC method along with competing non-predictive and predictive CLPC schemes are thoroughly investigated. The results clearly indicate the superiority of the proposed scheme with its improved robustness under non-ideal conditions. Furthermore, the authors carry out a Monte-Carlo simulation study of a 5%5 square grid cellular network and evaluate the user capacity. Capacity improvements up to 90% are observed for a typical cellular network scenario.
