Abstract: In this paper, we consider a T \times R massive MIMO system with up to R simultaneous links (T>> R>>1) and nonlinear amplifiers in each transmitter branch. The impact of a nonlinear amplification is analytically studied and accurate expressions for the spectral characterization of the transmitted signals, as well as the bit-error-rate (BER) are derived. The accuracy of our analysis is validated by simulations. It is also shown that the nonlinear distortion levels for detection purposes decrease with the ratio T/R, which means that the impact of the nonlinear distortion effects on the system's performance can be alleviated provided that T>>R. Therefore, the combination of massive MIMO systems with nonlinear, highly efficient power amplifiers can be an interesting option for low-cost, broadband wireless systems.
