Abstract

In this paper, a multi-user multi-relay network with wireless energy harvesting (EH) and transferring (ET) is studied. In our system, a simultaneous two-level cooperation, i.e., information-level and energy-level cooperation is conducted for uplink data transmissions (from the users to a destination). Specifically, network coding is employed at the relays to facilitate the information-level cooperation; meanwhile, ET is adopted to share the harvested energy among the users for the energy-level cooperation. The energy minimization problem that takes into account the energy causality and outage probability constraints is formulated. However, the optimization problem is non-convex and hard to be solved directly. Alternatively, an approximation technique is adopted to convert it into a convex one. By solving the convex problem, efficient power allocation and ET policies are designed. Numerical results show that the proposed algorithm is able to achieve a near-optimal performance and outperforms the state of arts.
