Abstract

In this paper, we propose an underlying Small-Cell-Networks (SCNs) Device-to-Device (D2D) pair with the use of time-switching Energy Harvesting (EH) techniques. More specifically, we have a D2D transmitter and receiver underlying SCNs operating in closeness to a SCNs primary user (PU). We propose two scenarios, in the first scenario we harvest energy from all of the available SCN base stations (BSs). Whereas in the second scenario we select the best BS link to harvest energy from. Moreover, the transmission is kept under a certain threshold between the D2D pair, so that it does not have any deleterious effect on the PU transmission link.
