AbstractThis paper investigates the energy-efficiency enhancement of a variable-gain dual-hop amplify-and-forward (AF) relay network utilizing selective relaying. The objective is to minimize the total consumed power while keeping the end-to-end signal-to-noise-ratio (SNR) above a certain peak value and satisfying the peak power constraints at the source and relay nodes. To achieve this objective, an optimal relay selection and power allocation strategy is derived by solving the power minimization problem. Numerical results show that the derived optimal strategy enhances the energy-efficiency as compared to a benchmark scheme in which both the source and the selected relay transmit at peak power. © 2013 IEEE.

Opportunistic relaying in multipath and slow fading channel: Relay selection and optimal relay selection periodSungjoon Park,; Stark, Wayne E. (2011 - MILCOM 2011 Military Communications Conference, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-11) [Conference Paper]In this paper we present opportunistic relay communication strategies of decode and forward relaying. The channel that we are considering includes pathloss, shadowing, and fast fading effects. We find a simple outage probability formula for opportunistic relaying in the channel, and validate the results by comparing it with the exact outage probability. Also, we suggest a new relay selection algorithm that incorporates shadowing. We consider a protocol of broadcasting the channel gain of the previously selected relay. This saves resources in slow fading channel by reducing collisions in relay selection. We further investigate the optimal relay selection period to maximize the throughput while avoiding selection overhead. © 2011 IEEE.
SWIPT in Multiuser MIMO Decode-and-Forward Relay Broadcasting Channel with Energy Harvesting RelaysBenkhelifa, Fatma; Salem, Ahmed Sultan; Alouini, Mohamed-Slim (2016 IEEE Globecom Workshops (GC Wkshps), Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017-02-09) [Conference Paper]In this paper, we consider a multiuser multiple- input multiple-output (MIMO) decode-and-forward (DF) relay broadcasting channel (BC) with single source, multiple energy harvesting relays and multiple destinations. Since the end-to-end sum rate maximization problem is intractable, we tackle a simplified problem where we maximize the sum of the harvested energy at the relays, we employ the block diagonalization (BD) procedure at the source, and we mitigate the interference between the relay- destination channels. The interference mitigation at the destinations is managed in two ways: either to fix the interference covariance matrices at the destination and update them at each iteration until convergence, or to cancel the interference using an algorithm similar to the BD method. We provide numerical results to show the relevance of our proposed solution.
A modified time-switching relaying protocol for multi-destination relay networks with SWIPTAl-Habob, Ahmed A.; Salhab, Anas M.; Zummo, Salam A.; Alouini, Mohamed-Slim (2018 IEEE Wireless Communications and Networking Conference (WCNC), Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018-06-11) [Conference Paper]In this paper, we propose a modified time-switching relaying (TSR) protocol for dual-hop relay networks with simultaneous wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT) technique. We study the outage performance of the proposed TSR protocol and compare it with the conventional TSR and power-splitting relaying (PSR) protocols. A unified analytical expression is derived for the outage probability, in addition to studying the performance at high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) values where a unified approximate expression for the outage probability is provided and analyzed in terms of diversity order and coding gain. The results show that the proposed TSR protocol outperforms the conventional TSR protocol existing in literature. Also, findings illustrate that applying the SWIPT technique in multi-destination relay networks results in a unity diversity order.
