Low-complexity linear precoders are known to be close-to-optimal for massive multi-input multi-output (M-MIMO) systems. However, the large number of antennas at the transmitter imposes high computational burdens and high hardware overloads. In line with the above, in this paper we propose a low complexity antenna selection (AS) scheme which selects the antennas that maximize constructive interference between the users. Our analyses show that the proposed AS algorithm, in combination with a simple matched filter (MF) precoder at the transmitter, is able to achieve better performances than systems equipped with a more complex channel inversion (CI) precoder and computationally expensive AS techniques. First, we give an analytical definition of constructive and destructive interference, based on the phase of the received signals from phase-shifted-keying (PSK) modulated transmissions. Then, we introduce the proposed antenna selection algorithm, which identifies the antenna subset with the highest constructive interference, maximizing the power received by the user. In our studies, we derive the computational burden of the proposed technique with a rigorous and thorough analysis and we identify a closed form expression of the upper bound received power at the user side. In addition, we evaluate in detail the power benefits of the proposed transmission scheme by defining an efficiency metric based on the achieved throughput. The results presented in this paper prove that antenna selection and green radio concepts can be jointly used for power efficient M-MIMO, as they lead to significant power savings and complexity reductions.
