  • Patent number: 11291026
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described that provide for indicating transmit power control information to a user equipment (UE) for semi-persistent scheduling (SPS) transmissions in short transmission time intervals (TTIs) from the UE, and for configuring reference signal transmissions in SPS transmissions of short TTIs. A UE may be configured with uplink power control information for SPS transmissions that use sTTIs that is separate from uplink power control for longer TTIs. A UE may receive the power control information and apply it in SPS transmissions that use sTTIs. Uplink transmit power for SPS sTTI transmissions may be independent of power control for regular sTTI transmissions and independent of power control for long TTI transmissions. UEs may apply a cyclic shift to reference signals transmitted is SPS transmissions according to a SPS configuration, rather than a cyclic shift indicated in a SPS activation command.
