Abstract: Power control (PC) is an important issue in a direct sequence-code division multiple access (DS-CDMA) cellular mobile radio system. Higher link performance and greater system capacity cannot be achieved unless an appropriate PC mechanism is employed. In previous research, a delta-modulation (DM) realization of strength-based and SIR-based PC mechanisms for uplink communication has been studied by simulation. In order to obtain higher PC trackability, in this paper we study a pulse-code-modulation (PCM) realization of the above two PC mechanisms for the uplink of a DS-CDMA cellular mobile radio system. The simulation results presented here indicate that PC mechanisms with PCM realization for the uplink can achieve a lower outage probability and thus higher link performance than PC mechanisms with DM realization. We also obtain optimal design parameters such as the stepsize and the control mode for the two PCM PC mechanisms. In addition, we compare the two PCM PC mechanisms in terms of their outage probability and stability and find that the strength-based mechanism has a higher outage probability but greater stability than the SIR-based mechanism.
