Adaptive Power Allocation for Hybrid ARQ with Chase Combining in Correlated Rayleigh Fading Channels
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
We consider the problem of minimizing the packet drop probability (PDP) under an average transmit power constraint for Chase combining (CC)-based hybrid-automatic repeat request (HARQ) schemes in correlated Rayleigh fading channels. We propose a method to find a solution to the non-convex optimization problem using an exact expression of the outage probability. However, the complexity of this method is high. Later, we propose an alternative approach in which we use an asymptotically equivalent expression for the outage probability and reformulate it as a geometric programming problem (GPP), which can be efficiently solved using convex optimization algorithms. The results show that the proposed power allocation methods provide significant gains over equal power allocation (EPA).
