In this paper, a new interweave cognitive radio (CR) transmission scheme is analytically presented for energy harvesting (EH)-enabled transmitting nodes. EH is performed via a dedicated power beacon (PB) base station through wireless power transfer, which harvests energy to both primary and secondary systems. The out-band mode-of-operation between PB and the two heterogeneous systems is considered, i.e., data communication and EH are realized at different frequency bands and asymmetric (non-equal) time durations. The performance of the new interweave CR system is studied under independent and not necessarily identically distributed κ – μ shadowed faded channels. Representative numerical and simulation results corroborate the effectiveness of the proposed scheme and presented analysis, while some useful engineering insights are provided.
