Based on the data analysis, similar transmitter states with different configurations can be clustered, resulting in a significant reduction of linearization states. Model complexity within the cluster can be further reduced by utilizing a penalty factor method. To validate the proposed concept, experiments were carried out on a 16-channel mmWave beamforming transmitter with configurable beam angle, operating frequency, and input power. Total 216 transmitter states can be reduced to 8, 20, and 40 states with unequal optimal model parameters for each state, without losing much performance. The proposed method can be extended to the scenario where a large scale of dynamic states can occur in complex transmitter structures in future wireless systems.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Funding Details:||National Natural Science Foundation of China||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||IEEE||Journal:||IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques||Volume:||69||Issue:||3||Start page:||1805||End page:||1816||Copyright (published version):||2020 IEEE||Keywords:||Beamforming; Clustering; Digital predistortion; K-means; Millimeter wave; Multiple input multiple output; Power amplifier||DOI:||10.1109/tmtt.2020.3039747||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||ISSN:||0018-9480||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ie/|
