Distributed Adaptive Power Allocation for Wireless Relay Networks
— In this paper, we consider a 2-hop wireless diversity relay network. We explore transmit power allocation among the source and relays to maximize the received signal to noise ratio (SNR) at the destination. We consider two relay protocols, ”amplify and forward” (AAF) and ”decode and forward” (DAF) and design the respective power allocations for both uncoded and coded systems. For a 2-hop relay system with one relay node, we derive a closed-form power allocation solution and, based on it, we propose a relay activation condition. If and only if the fading channel coefficients satisfy this condition, the relay transmits the signals to the destination; otherwise, the relay will stay in the idle state. For a system with more than one relay node, general closed-form power allocation solutions based on an extact SNR expression are difficult to derive; we hence, calculate a SNR upper bound and derive a sub-optimum power allocation solution based on this bound. The simulation resu...
