In many practical systems, perfect channel state information (CSI) is difficult to obtain at the base station (BS), we usually use limited feedback CSI to reduce the symbol error rate (SER). To analyze the SER performance of different transmit distributed antenna (DA) subset in limited feedback distributed antenna systems (DAS), the closed-form SER expressions for both binary phase shift keying (BPSK) and M-phase shift keying (MPSK) are derived in this paper. From these expressions, we find there exists an appropriate transmit DA subset which can obtain the best SER performance. Then, an adaptive transmit DA selection scheme with the minimum SER is proposed. Simulation results show that the proposed scheme can achieve SER performance gain than blanket transmission scheme and selection diversity scheme.
