Abstract

Cellular network can use renewable energy through energy harvesting technology in green communication. In this paper, power allocation for heterogeneous cellular networks (HetNets) with energy harvesting is proposed to maximize the system energy efficiency. Considering the minimal transmit rate of the users and the battery capacity of the system, a low complexity power allocation algorithm based on fractional programming is proposed to maximize the energy efficiency of the system. Simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm.
