Trading wireless information and power transfer: Relay selection to minimize the outage probability
MetadataShow full item record
This paper studies the outage probability minimization problem for a multiple relay network with energy harvesting constraints. The relays are hybrid nodes used for simultaneous wireless information and power transfer from the source radio frequency (RF) signals. There is a tradeoff associated with the amount of time a relay node is used for energy and information transfer. Large intervals of information transfer implies little time for energy harvesting from RF signals and thus, high probability of outage events. We propose relay selection schemes for a cooperative system with a fixed number of RF powered relays. We address both causal and non-causal channel state information cases at the relay-destination link and evaluate the tradeoff associated with information/power transfer in the context of minimization of outage probability.
