Summary: 
One effective way to make a large-capacity mobile communication system is to use a microcellular system. One way to do this is to place the base station antennas lower than the surrounding buildings. This result in what is called a street microcellular system. We previously presented basic simulation results evaluating the performance of a different-sized cell combination algorithm (DCC) designed to avoid the problems due to an unbalanced distribution of traffic in street microcellular systems. In this paper, we present the results of simulations evaluating the performance of an improved active different-sized cell combination method (ADCC) that controls the transmission power of each base station.
