Abstract [en]

We illustrate potential benefits of using massive antenna arrays for wireless energy transfer (WET). Specifically, we analyze probability of outage in WET over fading channels when a base station (BS) with multiple antennas beamforms energy to a wireless sensor node (WSN). Our analytical results show that by using massive antenna arrays, the range of WET can be increased for a given target outage probability. We prove that by using multiple-antenna arrays at the BS, a lower downlink energy is required to get the same outage performance, resulting in savings of radiated energy. We show that for energy levels used in WET, the outage performance with least-squares or minimum mean-square-error channel estimates is the same as that obtained based on perfect channel estimates. We observe that a strong line-of-sight component between the BS and WSN lowers outage probability. Furthermore, by deploying more antennas at the BS, a larger energy can be transferred reliably to the WSN at a given target outage performance for the sensor to be able to perform its main tasks. In our numerical examples, the RF power received at the input of the sensor is assumed to be on the order of a mW, such that the rectenna operates at an efficiency in the order of 50%.

Abstract [en]

In this paper, we examine the feasibility of wireless energy transfer (WET) using arrays with multiple antennas. Specifically, we compute the probability of outage in energy transfer over a Rician fading channel when the base station (BS) with multiple antennas transfers energy to a wireless sensor node (WSN). Through our analytical and numerical results, we prove that by deploying more antennas at the BS, the range of WET can be increased while maintaining a target outage probability. We observe that the use of massive antenna arrays at the BS results into huge savings of radiated energy. We show that for typical energy levels used in WET, the outage performance with imperfect channel state information (CSI) is essentially the same as that obtained based on perfect CSI. We also observe that a strong line-of-sight component between the BS and the WSN lowers the probability of outage in energy transfer.

Abstract [en]

We propose a novel minimum mean square error estimator that estimates the channel power gain of the link from the secondary transmitter to the primary receiver (PRx). It lowers the root mean square error compared to several other estimators used in the underlay cognitive radio literature that first estimate the channel amplitude. We then analyze its system impact for two types of interference constraints. To this end, for the optimal binary transmit power control policy, we derive closed-form expressions for the average interference and the probability that the interference at the PRx violates a peak interference constraint with the proposed estimator. We show that the proposed estimator performs closer to the perfect channel state information scenario compared to the other estimators.

Abstract [en]

Adapting the power of secondary users (SUs) while adhering to constraints on the interference caused to primary receivers (PRxs) is a critical issue in underlay cognitive radio (CR). This adaptation is driven by the interference and transmit power constraints imposed on the secondary transmitter (STx). Its performance also depends on the quality of channel state information (CSI) available at the STx of the links from the STx to the secondary receiver and to the PRxs. For a system in which an STx is subject to an average interference constraint or an interference outage probability constraint at each of the PRxs, we derive novel symbol error probability (SEP)-optimal, practically motivated binary transmit power control policies. As a reference, we also present the corresponding SEP-optimal continuous transmit power control policies for one PRx. We then analyze the robustness of the optimal policies when the STx knows noisy channel estimates of the links between the SU and the PRxs. Altogether, our work develops a holistic understanding of the critical role played by different transmit and interference constraints in driving power control in underlay CR and the impact of CSI on its performance.
