Recently, energy detection (ED) has been investigated in massive single-input multiple-output (SIMO) systems, where transmit symbols can be decoded by averaging the received power across all receive antennas. In this paper, we concentrate on the performance of non-coherent massive SIMO in the presence of antenna correlation. Specifically, closed-form expressions of symbol error rate (SER) and achievable rate are derived. Furthermore, asymptotic behaviors of SER and achievable rate in regimes of a large number of receive antennas, high antenna correlation and large signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) are investigated. Interestingly, the results show that antenna correlation poses a great impact to SER, but has little effect on the achievable rate. Numerical results are presented to verify our analytical results.
