The interference reduction capability of antenna arrays, base station assignment and the power control algorithms have been considered separately as means to increase the capacity in wireless communication networks. In this paper, we propose base station assignment method based on minimizing the transmitter power (BSA-MTP) technique in a direct sequence-code division multiple access (DS-CDMA) receiver in the presence of frequency-selective Rayleigh fading and power control error (PCE). This receiver consists of three stages. In the first stage, with conjugate gradient (CG) adaptive beamforming algorithm, the desired users' signal in an arbitrary path is passed and the inter-path interference (IPI) is canceled in other paths in each RAKE finger. Also in this stage, the multiple access interference (MAI) from other users is reduced. Thus, the matched filter (MF) can be used for the MAI reduction in each RAKE finger in the second stage. Also in the third stage, the output signals from the matched filters are combined according to the conventional maximal ratio combining (MRC) principle and then are fed into the decision circuit of the desired user. The simulation results indicate that BSA-MTP technique can significantly improve the network bit error rate (BER) in comparison with the conventional case. Also, the average BER and capacity of the system are shown to be significantly affected by the PCE.
