Performance of selection combining (SC) receiver has been derived over two-wave diffused power (TWDP) fading channels with arbitrary and non-identical fading parameters. An expression of cumulative distribution function (CDF) of signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) for TWDP fading channel has been derived, which is used to obtain the probability density function (PDF) of SNR at the output of SC receiver. The PDF of output SNR has been used to derive expressions of outage probability and average bit error rate for coherent and non-coherent modulation schemes. Effect of total number of branches M and the fading parameters K and Δ on the system performance has been studied. The obtained results are verified with the special case results available in literature and by Monte Carlo simulation.
