The present work deals with optimized strategies to address the issue of link adaptation (Adaptive Coding and Modulation - ACM) in a multi-user multi-beam satellite system employing precoding at the gateway side. Accordingly, the focus is on the forward link of a multi-beam satellite system employing a full frequency reuse configuration. In such an interference limited setting, the Super-Framing structure of DVB-S2X air interface (format specification 2 and 3) enables the use of precoding techniques. The aim herein is to investigate the Signal-to-Noise-plus- Interference (SNIR) estimation error given by the User Terminals (UTs) through the so-called P2 pilots is taken into account to optimize the ACM margins.

Linear precoding exploits the spatial degrees of freedom offered by multi-antenna transmitters to manage interferences between multiple co-channel users. The adoption of precoding in practical systems, however, entails a series of practical barriers. Amongst several issues, the focus herein is on the non-linear dependence of the input versus the output power of the efficient and reliable amplifiers that drive each transmit antenna, which limits the system performance. As a first step, the present work studies the impact of linear precoding on the peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) of precoded waveforms in multibeam satellite systems using a finite alphabet. In this context, a sensitivity analysis of the PAPR at the input of each amplifier with respect to intrinsic system level parameters, such as the number of transmit feeds, is performed. Next, the performance of the whole non-linear satellite chain is analyzed with respect to the symbol-error-rate (SER) and the total degradation (TD) of the channel. Furthermore, two low-complexity solutions are considered for counteracting the effects of the non-linearities of the satellite channel on the precoded waveforms, namely an automatic gain control (AGC) operation and a non-linear equalization performed at the receiver side.
