I have a simulation to make where I have an array of transmitters that transmit the same signal. At a random point, which I have to consider as a receiver I have to measure the phase shift of the signals and also measure the total signal strength. The requirement is that the transmitter emit the same signal but with different phase offsets.
- As far I understood because the transmitters are separated apart, the received signal is already is offset by some phase because they travel distances. Is my assumption right?
- I know the formula to find the phase offset given the distance travelled of two signals - how do I calculate it for multiple signals? Or am I understanding the question wrong?
- How do I calculate the total signal strength for all signals combined? I know for one signal, assuming a free space, line of sight connection I can use friis equation. But how do I use it for multiple signals?
Any help is very much appreciated. I am Software Engineer who have recently taken up Wireless communications course, and I'm not sure if I understand the motivation and meaning behind the simulation right. Thanks!
