Power Control in Wireless Communications Networks - from a Control Theory Perspective
2002 (English)Report (Other academic)
The global communications systems critically relyon control algorithms of various kinds. In wireless communications systems, power control algorithms play an important role for efficient resource utilization. This survey article discusses relevant aspects of power control with emphasis on practical issues, using an automatic control framework. Generally, power control of each connection is distributedly implemented as cascade control, with an inner loop to compensate for fast variations and an outerloop focusing on longer term statistics. These control loops are interrelated via complex connections, which affect important issues such as capacity, load and stability. Therefore, both local and global properties are important. The concepts and algorithms are illustrated by simple examples and simulations.
