This paper investigates power allocation and outage performance for the MIMO full duplex relaying (MFDR) based on orthogonal space-time block Codes (OSTBC) in cognitive radio systems. OSTBC transmission is used as a simple way to obtain multi-antenna diversity gain. Cognitive MFDR systems offer the advantage not only of increasing spectral efficiency by spectrum sharing but also of extending the coverage through the use of relays. In cognitive MFDR systems, the primary user experiences interference from the secondary source and relay simultaneously due to the full duplexing. What is therefore needed is a way to optimize the transmission powers at the secondary source and relay. Therefore, we propose an optimal power allocation (OPA) scheme based on minimizing the outage probability in cognitive MFDR systems. We then analyze the outage probability of the secondary user in the noise-limited and interference-limited environments under Nakagami-m fading channels. Simulation results show that the proposed schemes achieve performance improvement in terms of outage probability.
