The problem of Angle-of-Arrival estimation of multiple sources in the presence of mutual coupling is addressed. In this paper, we derive a Mean-Squared-Error (MSE) expression of a recently proposed algorithm that could estimate the Angles-of-Arrival of multiple sources in the presence of more mutual coupling parameters, compared to traditional methods. The MSE expression is compared with the MSE of MUSIC with known mutual coupling parameters and to the Cramer-Rao bound (CRB) of any unbiased estimator that estimates the Angles-of-Arrival in the presence of mutual coupling. It is shown that the proposed method is asymptotically unbiased. In addition, it is also shown that the method attains CRB for large number of antennas with fixed coupling parameters and uncorrelated sources. For high SNR, the CRB is not necessarily attained, however, we study the gap between the derived MSE and the CRB.
